Most importantly I have been facing this problem since my college days.Mostly I forget very quickly the names of people and other informations. As per my personal assesement ,my lack of concentration is one of the sole reason behind this. But now it is a high time I need to address this issue very seriously. This problem has badly affecting my self confidence and also professional progress.Another important concern of mine is I cannot stress my brain ie whenever any difficulty I face in remembering something,I give up very easily. I cannot hold my concentration for long.I wish to pursue a online course for professional advancement.
