Delayed Gratification Tips For Memory Training With Matt Dobschuetz

Matt Dobschuetz portrait for Magnetic Memory Method PodcastAll self improvement requires delayed gratification, especially memory training.

Now, I’m going to take you on an 180 degree spin, into the heart of a storm many millions of people face. Particularly men.

You see, I get a lot of private questions from people about memory.

And one of them involves online addiction, particularly around porn.

And that leads to compulsive behaviors, one of them being masturbation, more colorfully known as “fapping.”

Guess what?

Too much of it, especially when you’re wired for hours in front of a screen, definitely robs your memory of energy that could be used for memory training.


There’s no denying that more of this behavior is happening now than ever before.

The good news is that people have become incredibly frank about the problem.

In fact, I often receive this question in my inbox:

“Should I try a no-fap challenge to help me improve my memory?”

To date, I’ve never addressed the question formally.

An instead of taking the stance and saying, “If porn and masturbation is a distraction from your memory training, eliminate it and see what happens,” I decided to call in an expert. 

So let me introduce you to my friend Matt Dobschuetz.

Matt’s the man behind Porn Free Radio and He is a podcast show host, author and recovery coach for men dealing with addictions to pornography with one on one and group coaching through REV Group Coaching, which he founded.

On this episode of the Magnetic Memory Method Podcast, Matt and I discuss the problems porn addiction creates for your memory training progress.
