Tips to Remember Anything

Even at the best of times our memory can fail, leaving us hopelessly fumbling for that case name or trying to remember who had the onus of proof.

Here are a few ways in which you can remember anything :

  • Quiz, Don’t Reread – Recalling information builds pathways that strengthen recall in the future. Passive exposure rarely makes things stick.
  • Visualise It – Associating information to sensations is memorable, and vision is the strongest sensory cue for most people.
  • Structure It – Break up the information into parts or sub parts. Put related things together in a meaningful order.
  • Give It Meaning – Your brain is set up to capture information that means something to you. Before you try to remember something, be sure you understand it.
  • Relate It To Yourself – Personal relevance makes things stick and takes advantage of what you already know.
  • Create A Cue – Figure out what is most forgettable about the information and link that to something that’s more vivid or easier to recall.

  1. These helpful tips are so very true. I have had to memorize a lot of material in the past as both a law student and a theater actor. The type of material is very different, of course, but the memorization process is similar.
