applying what we learn
i love watching TED Videos because they teach me so much in short periods of time. However, most of the time i watch the video, love it, then watch other 10 videos, and when i get to the last video of the day, i have forgotten the analysis of the first one ( I normally do remember the key components of it, such as the topic, but not the analysis of said topic ). I have noticed that, after watching more than three times the same video, i start remembering most of it, but still, sometimes I may have trouble applying what the video tought me in real life. Has ayone else ever felt this before? How can i change this sad process of discontinuity? Thoughts please.

ted is a viable source of information, but not if you take what they say out of context. find meaning in the soul of the speaker, and connect on a loving plane to further group meditate with said speaker to create meaning in your heart. Digest instead of going in one ear and out the other. find truth in what people are trying to say, not what they are.
Maybe don’t watch 10, and watch 3 or 4. Reducing the amount of videos, and, as @josephm said, reflecting on them, could help you apply them, and most importantly, REMEMBER them.
After watching a video, analyze it, and think about how could that video relate to your daily life. Don’t just swallow the information all at once. Think about it, chew it for a while, and continue with others. If you start feeling that you are beginning to forget, STOP watching more, because it will only make you forget more and more.
@josephm, ive heard the same recommendation many times but it was not unitl know that i realize what it means. I appreciate your comment, I really do ! not only ingest information, we should also digest said information, got it ;)
@aleb9, i like your ideas. I will definitely try watching less videos, and understanding the ones i do watch in a much deeper and analytical way. The problem is that, when i am watching a video, at that moment the things the speakers talk about seem so obvious, that i do not feel the necessity to analyze it any further. Maybe it is because I am in the mood of acknowledging different perspectives, that I do not realize the importance of these said perspectives. nevertheless, i will make a note on your recommendations and try to apply them as much as possible and also not taking for granted any of the “lessons”.
@marthamena95, your point seems obvious and very valuable. So maybe don’t analyze it as much, just think on how the next day, or that week, how can you apply such obvious information in a small or large event. And if it help, make note of it. Hope it helps
