Mental Multi-tasking Ruins Memory

We often try to mentally register information while silently talking to ourselves.

In the classic case, you are introduced to someone and at the moment of being told the person's name you are also thinking of other things. For instance, what you're going to say next.

To remember better you must register information better.
To register better, pay attention - fully - for a moment.
