When You Forgot # Cue Card Tips

Describe an occasion when you forgot to do something important. Please say
– What was it?
– When and where did it happen?
– How did you feel after that?


Well, I usually do remember things as I have got a good memory but sometimes I tend to forget even important things if my life is already disturbed. I remember an incident when I forgot a very important work. It was during the time of placements in college and we all were very nervous and preparing for it. There were placement classes going on and other things were at high priority list. It was during this time, I forgot to pay my semester fee and after three days I was called by my class coordinator that I haven’t yet paid my fees. I was so stunned because there is a fine of Rs. 500 per day for late fee and three days meant Rs. 1500 which was a huge amount for me. I thanked my teacher and immediately went to the bank to pay the fee and also the fine.
On reaching home I felt really heavy but then also realized that this is what pressure handling is all about. You need to do things and yet make sure that you are still balanced and not missing out on other important things.
