Does it feel like you’re ‘reinventing the wheel’ every time you start a project, even if it’s something you’ve done before?
If so, it’s not your fault. It’s the way your brain is wired.
Executive Functioning is the CEO of the brain.
It’s the boss of things like making sure you leave enough time to get where you’re going, or not repeating the same mistakes over and over.
One of the primary assets of Executive Functioning is
“Working Memory:” the ability to recall how to do things.
Did you know that working memory skills
are a better predictor of academic success than IQ scores?

remember and follow instructions, organize and write
an essay, hold formulas in your head to figure out a math problem.
On the next page, I’m going to
give you an exercise that will help you strengthen your
Working Memory and make your life easier.
