I think he was probably referring to the TV serials or cartoons being a waste of time for him rather than the time spent with his daughter per se.

I would adjust the technique for you and go with the coffee/drink/eat option and 10 mins.

It's help me learn better too. I don't fall asleep after 15 minutes and I can concentrate for hours.

If you look at the folks who do memory competitions they'll tell you it's all about techniques and practices rather than just having 'better memory'. They feel their memory is similar to others. They still lock their keys in the car.

The other thing is that I've also learned so many techniques to help me that whether it's better memory or better use of memory techniques I am just 'better' at some memory stuff - but again, to give an example, with people names, I 'say three times', 'touch them' (i.e. handshake), 'write it down within the hour', etc.

It's hard to be specifc, much of it is a 'feeling' but... you have helped me by reminding me (no pun) that yes, I used to use to-do lists a lot but now I remember stuff that is 2 or 3 hours out, whereas before I was forgetting that stuff a lot.
