“99 percent of every person is the memory of what he or she knows,” Pachikov explains. He speaks slowly and deliberately, making each word count. “What you remember about your life is what makes you you, and me me,” he explains. “Take away my memories, and what is left? My nose. My glasses. Even my jokes will not be the same if I don’t have a memory.”
For example, by taking 30–60 minutes per day for prioritization, you can double your productivity. By auditing the relationships in your life, you can identify people you want to spend more time with and people you want to remove from your life. By looking at what experiences give you the most delight, you can begin to engineer your life differently.
