EPISODE 363: Improve Your Memory

I used to say, “I’m bad with names!” It wasn’t until my late 30s that I realized this was just an excuse for not learning how to remember names. Turns out, it’s not that hard. I’m not amazing, but I’m now pretty good and getting better all the time. My big secret? I put some effort into it.

My guest on this week’s show is a four-time USA memory champion. Here is a short list of his accomplishments:

What You’ll Learn:

  • Memorized 217 names in 15 minutes
  • Memorized 256 words in 15 minutes
  • Memorized 907 digits in 30 minutes

Memory skills are more than party tricks. It is a way to train and harness the power of your mind through specific techniques that can spill over with benefits into every aspect of your life. This is a fun one.
