Having trouble remembering things, especially long lists or numbers? Guess what? There is hope!
What if I told you there is a sure way to remember information of any kind, any length, and any difficulty effectively?
Kevin Horsley in Unlimited Memory: How to Use Advanced Learning Strategies to Learn Faster, Remember More, and Be More Productive demonstrates an easy process on how to highly improve your memory. He dispels the common myths about the brain and memorization: you can only remember certain things, only smart people remember details, or you are too old to remember. A quick and fascinating read, Horsley will blow your mind with these techniques to use to remember lists, definitions, all kinds of texts, and even a sequence of numbers.
Kevin begins his book by explaining why our memory constitutes who we are and why it’s important to make an effort to remember things. The book is divided into three parts: concentrate, create and connect, and continuous use. The first part explains how to establish the right mindset, gives a glimpse into how the brain works, and demonstrates how to best live in the present moment. All of this needs to happen before we can attempt to learn memory-improvement techniques.
Part two, the bulk of the book, gives various step-by-step plans on how to improve memory and become productive by assigning picture images to words and connecting new information to old information, linking our thoughts, and organizing them in a way that we will easily recall them. Part three is a summary of the importance of using these techniques and encouragement to practice and continue to use them.
The key to remembering is to create a relationship between the known and unknown, and that is what Kevin Horsley explains so succinctly in Unlimited Memory.
“No memory is ever alone; it’s at the end of a trail of memories, a dozen trails that each have their own associations.” – Louis L’Amour
It is mindboggling (pun intended) to think it’s possible to remember anything we need to remember with simple methods described in Horsley’s book. I wish I had learned these techniques when I was younger. I could have used them so many times in high school, college, or at various former jobs.
Just to bring the point home, have you ever wondered how long the number Pi is? If you have ever written down some of Pi, at what point did you stop? Well, Kevin Horsley is a world record holder in memorizing up to 10,000 digits of Pi. You read that right – he remembered 10,000 numbers in the right order! That is an amazing accomplishment!
According to MathMania, here is an example of the first 500 digits of Pi.
Now imagine trying to remember not just 500 but 10,000 digits. How is that even possible? Well, it is, according to Kevin Horsley. Not only is it possible, but there is a method that helps your mind remember easily, and Mr. Horsley teaches you that exact system.
Still not convinced? You’ll have to read the book!
I recommend Unlimited Memory: How to Use Advanced Learning Strategies to Learn Faster, Remember More, and Be More Productive by Kevin Horsley to anyone wanting to improve their thinking, efficiency, and learning. I can’t stress enough how important this reading is for students, especially. It will help you learn a method of remembering that takes practice, but once you have it down, it is indispensable and can be used for the rest of your life. I am definitely going to give his strategies a try!
