Eric quotes a source that points out...

Yes, that's why we have calendar apps on our phones.

agree.  einstein did not bother with phone numbers...and now most of us do not either

I didn't know that about Einstein. I bet he would have loved smartphones.

These three observations about the brain are the key:

  • We’re really good at remembering layouts, routes and spatial information.
  • Our minds are visual.
  • We remember things that stand out; things that are absurd, funny, sexual or offensive.

The rest of the article explains how to apply these principles.

I love how Eric summarizes the process:

Who knew developing your memory could be so much fun?

This article is worth re-reading and practicing.
