The Art of Memory

Having a hard time remembering things? Try this:

With all the little digital helpers we have around us we are not anymore obliged to remember things.  But I wanted to regain my capability!

That’s where I found out about this special species of humans who are obsessed with remembering things. From card decks to 67’890 digits of pi or just the challenges you face day to day.

Don’t worry you don’t have to have an enormous IQ to take advantage of techniques these memory wizards use. My choice is a technique called Memory Palace – 

1. It involves making a journey through a place you know well, like a building or town.  2. Along that journey there are specific locations that you always visit in the same order. 3. The location are called loci – that’s where you place the words, numbers or anything you want to remember.

So basically you short-circuit your longterm memory – you already know the places by heart … now you just add additional knowledge.

Good luck remembering to remember 🚀
