When focusing very hard, people will often miss large changes right before their eyes. This affect is called inattention blindness. Check out this video:
43. Speed Read
People read faster when looking at long lines of text.
Our eyes, however, prefer shorter lines.
42. What’s Your Angle?
People tend to imagine things from a high, tilted angle, like they’re looking at it on a table that’s about waist high.
Memories are reconstructed as they are recalled instead of playing back like a film. That’s why memories change over time, and why people forget certain details. Unforgettable fact right here.

You can only remember 3 or 4 things at time. Remember that, too.
Multiple studies (not all at once) have shown that you cannot actually multitask. Either all the things you’re doing are related to your main goal, or your performance dips in one of the tasks. One step at a time people!
