Being able to reach into your short term and long term memory on demand is a rare, coveted skill. So many times have I seen someone in a meeting who was able to remember someone’s name or the specifics of an article he had read and as a result come across much stronger. Slate has an awe-inspiring article on the current US Memory Championships. As an example, you have to memorize 1,000 digits in under an hour, the precise order of 10 shuffled deck in less than two minutes. Through the article I came across an interesting something called the journey method – a technique to remember information by placing images of information at predetermined points along a route you know well.
