You Can Have a Magnetic Memory (part 2)
Once you decide what all information you need to remember, prioritize them. Order them into a list. No problem if the list is fairly long as long as you keep in mind that you will advance only one to three steps a time to cover the list and that there is no instant formula to cover the whole list.
Now follow the following proven techniques:
1. Repeat in your mind any information that you wish to retain, as soon as you hear it, be it names, data or anything else. View the person, object, or place several times in your mind.
2. Always carry a very small pocket diary and note down those bits of information. Review the information several times a day when you are doing nothing, or when you want a minute of diversion from normal work. Let the diary be an inseparable tool.
In about 3 weeks you will notice a remarkable improvement in the amount of information that you have been able to retain. This may seem like a long time to wait, but please remember, just as the hardest part is to get a stationery vehicle to move, the first steps are the hardest. But the next steps will be far more easy and the more that you use this technique, the more the next step will become.
Add three more items in this list of to-remember things in the fourth week. Do the same two things with them mentioned earlier. This time you will notice that you need only two weeks to master them. Keep adding to this list as soon as you are able to master the last 3 items.
Keep doing this. Do not thinkÂ that you have arrived and do not drop out of the program. In about 3 to 6 months you will notice that your family and friends are now amazed at the way you are able to recollect facts and information. Now you have arrived. Keep it up, and your magnetic memory will help you in every aspect of your life.Now is the time to go to higher memory-based pursuits, such as reading a book once and remembering it. While an average person will find it impossible to do this, you can now do it if you simply summarize each chapter of the book mentally and in writing, using the two techniques that you used to master your memory.
The key is to tell your mind that you wish to remember this information. The next key is to give a summary to your mind, which it will use to recall much more than the summary.
