How not to forget

Here’s a suggestion on how to not forget …

Just imagine, someone has said to you “don’t forget xyz” and you’ve probably forgotten exactly what you were asked not to forget.

The subconscious interprets don’t forget as do forget because it doesn’t register “not”.

So, you’ve essentially been told to “Do forget xyz”.

Try this instead …

Use the word “remember” – it’s positive and clear.

“Please remember xyz”

By using the word remember, the subconscious mind knows exactly what’s needed.
