How To Memorize Anything

Posted by on Nov 17, 2008

Well, of all things, my wife got me into this one, so I’m sharing it with you. As we’re getting older, we’re both finding ourselves sometimes forgetting some of the smaller things. I used to never forget almost anything, until I turned 28, when I started taking on more and more responsibilities as my career began to take off. She’s pretty sharp herself. But, hey, it comes along with getting older, as you’re still trying to accumulate as much information as before, but your mind has to allow for you to forget other things, and often it’s current stuff, such as “why did I go to the kitchen?”

Anyway, while at work on Friday, she downloaded some report off the internet and sent it to herself here at home. Then she sent it on to me and asked me to take a look through it. It’s called The Shocking Truth About Your Memory, and it’s basically a 16-page report written by a guy named Sten Anderson who talks about memory issues, then gives some tips on how to work on those issues.

Now, the good thing is that he doesn’t give you lots of physiologic information as to why your memory is failing, although I did read a news story on why we forget things. Instead, he points out some things that I hate to admit are true, telling mini stories to highlight the topic, and yeah, there’s a lot of fluff until you get to the meat, but it’s entertaining stuff.

Finally he gets to what he says are 12 questions that will start you on your way to having a better memory when it comes to facts. I’m only going to give you the first three, because I have an ulterior motive here; of course you knew that already. Anyway, here are the first three questions:

1. Where did it come from?

w. What caused it?

3. What history or record has it?

Now, I don’t know if that’s enough of a teaser, but it’s all you’re getting from me. Here’s the deal. You see that this report, The Shocking Truth About Your Memory, is a link. It links to one of those pages that asks you for your name and email address. It’s connected to Clickbank, and of course that means this is my Clickbank link. The report is free, so it won’t cost you anything, but the truth is that I’ve yet to ever have anyone click on one of my Clickbank links; at least I’ve never seen a statistic saying anyone has ever clicked on one. Because it’s free, I don’t mind asking you, if you’re even a little bit interested, in clicking on the link.

I’ll even tell you this much; the reason the report is free is because Andersen is hoping you’ll be enticed enough to purchase, by clicking another link within the report, his full ebook on the subject, or the ebook and 4-hour audio files. My wife was ready to click on it, but, since she already clicked on it at work, I can’t get a piece of it anymore. But that’s not the issue here. I need to see if this bad boy will work, if Clickbank is really recording clicks, and, I’m really curious to see if I earn anything off this bad boy if someone clicks on the links. I’ve been reading lately that some people have been saying Clickbank hasn’t been recording all their clicks, so I’d like to see for myself. And, as I said, I wouldn’t ask for it if it weren’t free.

So, take a chance, use your second email address, click on The Shocking Truth About Your Memory link, and request the report. You’ll be helping me test something, it costs you nothing, and who knows, you just might learn a thing or two. Thanks!

No thank you. I am not about to fall for all that spiel and part with some of my pension money!

Which spiel, Rummuser? The thing I posted here is totally free.

Mitch, the first time I went to the site from your link, after I entered the name and my email address I was taken to a page 2 where I was given a long spiel about the book which will be made available to me at a discounted price of some 19 odd dollars etc. After I received your response, I went again and received this message:

I checked my mail and got the download which is just now sitting on my desk top. I shall have a look and revert. Sorry about that!

Ah, now I get it. I was trying to figure out last night how my wife got to that page, and you just confirmed it to me. Since she had already ordered it, I didn’t put my name into the page and do it again; maybe I should have. Actually, she wants to buy it, but has decided to wait until some other things get taken care of first.

But I thank you for clicking on it, because now I’ll know by tomorrow if it shows my click. As for the memory course,… I don’t know if it’s good or not. But I bought a memory course almost 37 years ago, got through book one, and never got to the rest of the books, but not for the reason you might think. I should write about it one day. 🙂

Mitch, I am intrigued enough to try that report. The point however is that I am much older than you are. At least I think I am! I use what my first ever Supervisor told me a thousand times if not more – “A short pencil is better than a long memory” I still carry a pocket book and a pen wherever I go and religiously use them to note things down that I need to remember. At home I have one special diary, where I do the same. Over the years, I have trained myself to use these devices and have so far been reasonably happy with the results.

My son is modern and uses his whatever you call it thingamajig mobile phone cum whatever to do the same thing. Apparently, it works for him too.

The click thru gave an error,

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 4980736 bytes) in /usr/home/web/wno138283/bbclone/var/access.php on line 2865

Thanks Patrick; I wonder what’s up with that program and link. Well, now I know, so I just might have to delete it.

November 17th, 2008 | 9:57 PM

so… am I going to get the white paper?

November 18th, 2008 | 12:42 AM

Doesn’t look like it, because if it worked it should have sent you an email so you could download the file.

November 18th, 2008 | 12:51 AM

hi Mitch,
I often wonder about my memory, since I think I remember less and less about my childhood, but since I can’t remember what I forgot, I’m not sure if I forgot it. Kind of a catch 22. I do a lot of sudoko, which I enjoy and I hear is good for the brain.
Anyway, I’ve got a second email address just for this kind of thing so I’ll click through for you.
In the meantime, if you get a chance, could you read my latest post? Since you’re a social networker I think, maybe you could help Will a little with his post (assuming you think it is worthy).

hey Mitch,
I put in my name and email address and hit submit, and like Patrick above I think, got this error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 4980736 bytes) in /usr/home/web/wno138283/bbclone/var/access.php on line 2865

Thanks for trying, Patrick. At least I know the link from this end works, but I wonder what’s up with this guy and his program. Oh well,…

I like things to do with memory – I highly recomend chceking out the ‘peg system’, which is very useful in memorising things – I once memorised a list of 100 things using this technique and could tell you what was at any position in the list. Was very sad, but I felt like I acomplished something! lol

I just read up on it, Dan, and believe it or not, that’s the system I was supposed to learn way back when. Weird.

November 18th, 2008 | 10:44 AM

Heck, I almost forgot to respond to this post! lol
