How to Memorize Just About Anything…
If you can doodle, draw stick figures, or visualize – you’ve got this!
Here are a couple of examples of how this technique has worked for me!
My daughter and I went to a football game a while back in Detroit and we parked on two cross streets.
I told her we needed a way to memorize the streets because we parked pretty far from the stadium.
So I told her we should visualize a farmer with a tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on the back of his neck to remember the streets “Farmer” and “Monroe.”
Sure enough, when we left the game I very easily remembered the picture we visualized and we were able to find out where we parked.
This is just a simple example of how I approach being able to memorize anything.[tweet_box design=”default”]I began doodling to help me memorize facts I needed to know in college and still use that technique to this day. – Vince Palko[/tweet_box]
I did this same sort of thing one time with my middle daughter to help her study for a test.
We decided to draw pictures to help her memorize names for her test.
For example, for the Inca Indians, we visualized an ‘ink bottle’. I explained to her that she was a visual learner and she would do best visualizing what she needed to learn in creative ways.
That night she told me that she ended up getting 100% on her test.
That’s essentially the formula.[tweet_box design=”default”]When I’m away from my desk and I have a great business idea, I stack visual images on top of each other, and it really helps me recall those ideas that I don’t want to forget. – Vince Palko[/tweet_box]
