At my company’s work retreat this summer, we were divided into small groups and participated in a team building competition. One of which looked something like the above. (Can’t believe I actually found the right image under the search query, ‘Leaking pipe + team’ Kudos to Google Images)
It was a simple one: at lake shore, small cups and a pipe with many holes with a small buoyant piece were given to each teams; then each team had to figure out the optimal numbers of runners vs., hole blockers to beat out other teams in filling up the pipe.
This exactly is how our memory retention abilities work. As we continue learning and acquiring head-aching amount of information, most sips right out of our cell membranes. And what about the competition part? I’m sure the ability to retain, will weigh heavily on our excellence in just about everything – including in your social/love life. 😉
This is the reason, why I decided to come back to the blog-o-sphere.
Since I last wrote for my blog, I’ve continuously learnt and sought new knowledge. One of the notable examples, is my initiative in watching TED videos during my commute. However, since I don’t really take notes in my semi-sleeping state in the mornings and nights, I don’t quite remember most of the talks.
So here is me – again. Back for more; and more to give.
