Even though you can’t be in two places at once, and you’re doing the best you can, the fear of not doing everything can still be overwhelming.

This is what will appear in your mind when I ask you to recall the night view in the city. When it comes to memory, our brains are typically no better than an 8GB USB storage device. In the modern world, information bombards us constantly. And if we rely on our 8GB capacity to memorize as much as possible, the only way to…
