Memory tricks
Ten simple ways to recall anything

 1. Draw Mind Maps. That's how your brain stores information: like branches on a tree. And if you draw Mind Maps using symbols as well as bold words, you'll be able to visualize the main points. Click here to learn the key principles.
2. Learn with all your senses. If you can see it, touch it, taste it, hear it and smell it, you are much more likely to remember it.

3. Learn by doing. "Muscle memory" is extremely powerful. That's why you can easily ride a bike, even if you haven't been on one for 20 years.

4. Use linking tools as memory pegs. "The more you link, the more you learn" - that's the key to most memory courses. So attach new information on to information that you know well.

5. Make those links visual - like visualizing a McDonald's arch with a crocodile under it to recall that Ray Krok founded the fast-food chain.

6. Make your links physical - like learning to count in Japanese, using a simple series of physical actions.

7. Make your links in rhyme - and visualize them. Click here for examples.

8. Practice, practice, practice. If you're learning French, work in a French restaurant. Studying shorthand? Write every day over a newspaper editorial. Join Toastmasters to practice public speaking.

9. Memorize initial letters - such as AIDA (attract Attention, arouse Interest, create Desire, and urge Action) as the key principles of advertising. Make up your own.

10. Get emotionally involved. Emotion is the gateway to learning.

These simple tips are included in Chapter 4 of the world's best-selling book, The Learning Revolution, by Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos - the chapter that covers The first 20 steps to learn anything much faster, better and more easily.
