Do you have trouble remembering things?
I’m terrible with details. Wanting to improve my memory, I was blown away when I saw young kids memorizing a deck of cards.
How did they do it?
Instead of blindly trying to memorize them, they created stories about each of the cards.
I tried their approach. The king of diamonds was represented by Tom Cruise, the king of the box office. The Queen of hearts was represented by Oprah, one of the most beloved celebrities.
By stringing together stories about each of the cards, I was able to memorize an entire deck in minutes.
How might this help you?
The next time you pitch your ideas, string together a series of stories. This will help your ideas live in your audience’s mind long after you’ve left the room.
Thanks for caring!
