How many stories do you remember from your childhood? I bet you can think of at least a dozen off the top of your head. And I bet you can tell me the specifics of each of those stories.
Now how many reports and presentations can you remember from the last year at work? You probably couldn’t tell me the specifics of even one.
Why is it that you can remember details from stories you haven’t heard in years and years, but not information that was presented to you just weeks or months previously?
