A man ventures off to take on a new career. Now he takes on the career he feels fresh and ready to go. Later down the road, the person begins feeling frustrated, angry, and ready to move onto another job. He hands in his letter to resign and moves onto another job. Later down the road, the man starts to feel frustrated, and feels like he is missing something. He resigns from this job and moves onto another career. This continues. Why does this continue?

The biggest problem here is a cluttered mind. The person is experiencing traps of the mind, as he feels frustrated, angry, and unfamiliar with his path in life. The problem is the person failed to make his goals meaningful.
Making your goal meaningful is the key to sharpening the mind. If you know, what you want and know what it takes to reach your goals you will have a successful road to travel. Since the goal in this situation is to sharpen the short-term memory, we can ask a few questions to help you consider your goal, the purpose, what you have to do to reach the goal, and how you can make it meaningful.
What do you want to achieve? What will it take to achieve your goal? What effort are you willing to put into achieving a sharper mind? Why do you want a sharper mind? You will need to learn tools for sharpening the mind, such as organized thoughts, previewing, inspiration, reciting, repeating, role-play, reconstruction, removing traps, creation of pictures, relaxation, associations, active, writing skills, reduction of interferences, attitude adjusters, and the like.
What does organizing the thoughts do for sharpening the mind? How will organizing my thoughts help me to reach my goal? Once I complete my goal, will I need to continue using these tools?
Organizing the thoughts will prepare you to face all memories that come your way. As you organize your thoughts, you are freeing up room for the mind to function properly. Once you achieve your goal, you will need to continue using the steps to keep the mind sharp.
What does removing traps mean? How can this help me achieve my goal? What does this have to do with sharpening short-term memory? Removing traps has everything in the world to do with sharpening short-term memory. How it works. Removing traps means that you will learn to sharpen the short-term memory by reviewing and previewing before probing into what it is you want to learn and keep in your mind. The traps are frustration, anger, emptiness, anxiety, and the like. For instance, if you want to study for a test, instead of sitting self up for a fall, you would remove the traps by reviewing and previewing the information first to prepare the mind for the new information.
How does creating pictures help to sharpen the short-term memory? As you draw pictures or diagrams, you will soon learn how this tool works. This sharpens the mind, since the long-term memory captures images, words, and the like through a mental processing pattern. Unlike short-term memory, which captures brief details, the long-term memory captures the entire scene through sensory.
Lastly, you can continue reviewing the information provided to you while asking questions to learn how you can sharpen the mind and how the tools work to help you reach your goal.
*Gentlemen: I am not singling you out by using a man as an example. Rather, this story is based on a person known by me who actually went through these changes. Women too will have difficulty with sharpening the mind and knowing their direction in life. I needed to clarify this, so that you men did not think I was targeting the male race. Some people may think this.
