I have to admit I remember very little of what I read when I was younger. I’ve stopped attempting to do any kind of math in my head. And pretty much every class I’ve ever taken boils down to a blur. But these things aren’t important to me.
What has stuck with me and become stronger as I’ve gotten older are things like time management, thoroughness, and how to achieve long and short term goals. I did not use all of these things all throughout my life but now these lessons and others have come back to me and it’s not like I’m doing it for the first time or rekindling a flame. The actions come with the memory of having attempted to do these things before and that memory only makes me stronger.
