Author: Ron White
As I was checking out memory books on Amazon.com, I came across an intriguing book with the title “How To Improve Your Memory in Just 30 Days”, just what I had been looking for: a program for improving my memory gradually!
Have you ever walked into a room and couldn’t remember what you went there for?
* Have you ever grasped the hand of a potential client and then when the handshake broke, the name seemed to disappear from your memory?
* Or have you ever left a prospect or an important meeting and as you drove away remembered a key point that you should have shared with them?
The problem is NOT with your memory. The problem is with the “Filing System” your brain currently uses to store and retrieve memory items. Change the filing system and you’ll double and even triple your memory comprehension.
Two-time USA Memory Champion Ron White will teach you the same 2,000-year-old memory method that he has already taught thousands to:
* Give presentations and speeches without notes…
* Memorize chapters of books word for word…
* Retain information from workshops or training classes…
* Improve your grades and study skills…
* Remember names and faces, even years later…
* Routinely memorize 100 digit numbers after hearing them only once…
* And lots more!
–> Included with this book is an offer for a FREE bonus video of U.S. Champion Ron White teaching you “Easy As 1-2-3 Memory Tricks” <–
About Memory Training
As psychologists tell us, if we do something every day for 21 days, it will become a habit. So go ahead: make instant recall memory a habit!
The program is divided into 30 sections to be completed in 30 days; it should take you about 10 minutes a day. However you may progress at your own pace (you can do more than one lesson per day if you wish, in which case you’ll get thru the training faster.)
Can you devote at least 10 minutes a day to improving your memory?
The author points out that some people who buy this course oppose any kind of change. They don’t want to make the effort to train their memory. But, those who do stand to reap rich benefits: they should be able to effortlessly recall names, faces, numbers, and giving speeches without notes. Yes, this system can help you in every area of your life!
So, enjoy the 2500-year old techniques you are about to learn and remember: you are the greatest computer ever created!
Here are some excerpts from this intriguing book:
The Levels of Memory Skills
Basic Association (Remember every item in a list of 20 by picturing a number associated with each item)
An example: To remember these items:
- Golf clubs
Do this basic association:
Pencil looks like a No. 1 (associate it with the number 1)
A sink has two knobs and two options (hot and cold), thus the association with the number 2)
Circus (associate with 3 for three-ring circus)
Track (associate it with the fact that there are 4 lanes in a track)
Star (associate it with the number 5 because there are five points in a star)
Bullet (associate with the number 6. If someone shoots you, you’re 6 ft. underground, aren’t you?
Dice (associate with the number 7, for “lucky seven”)

Chain of Visualization (an easy way to remember a story)
An example: To remember these items: Associate a story with these items
Glass of water
Check for $50,000
Keys to a brand new Corvette
The story: A German shepherd is coming down Mount Rainier on a bicycle, carrying a glass of water with one hand and a shoe with the other. At the bottom of the mountain, he crashes into a TV set. He lands on a pillow, bounces on a trampoline and bounces off the trampoline into an airplane. The airplane lands in Dallas, and Richard Nixon is waiting for him. Nixon has black boots and a brown hat. He hands the German shepherd a check for $50,000 and gives him the keys to a brand new Corvette. He drives the Corvette back to Mount Rainier.
2000-year old memory method
To recall anything, you need 5 things: Focus, Location, Code, Action and Review
Location: The code your memory recognizes is pictures, so turn everything you want to recall into a picture. Your mind stores the picture in a “file” (a circuit) in your mind. That is the place where you mentally store the information.
