Having trouble remembering a list of to-do items or concepts for a presentation? Preparing for a test, and need a fast way to remember a bunch of things? You need mnemonics!
In today’s UncleNalts “YouTube Orbit” video (subscribe here, folks, for daily nonsense) I reveal a mnemonic device that will help you remember ten things. Here’s a visual depiction of your “pegs,” or devices on which you’ll hang/store what you want to remember. You’ll need to memorize this list first, but each item rhymes with the number it represents.
The key is to create a vivid, action-oriented, weird image or scene to connect what you’re trying to memorize to these ten images (which you’ll only have to learn once, and keep for life).
Example: So if you’re trying to remember to pick up dry cleaner’s as your fourth image… you need a WILD way to connect dry cleaner’s to item four (door).
Wrong way: Picturing yourself walking into the dry cleaner’s via the door is not going to work. Instead, try something freaky.
Right way: Imagine that you’re picking up your shirts, but the dry cleaner’s is giving you one shirt at a time… requiring you to walk through a series of doors that are vibrating. On each door is one of your shirts hanging on the door knob. You get into a fight with the dry cleaner because you’re frustrated with how cumbersome it is to pick up your shirts. THAT you’ll remember.
A special video for you WillVideoforFood subscribers, and the secret members of the UncleNalts family. How to scam your way to saving money in college (and beyond). Some of my tips to help you waltz along life without playing by the rules of everyone else (okay that was a joke).
How to save money, sneak into events, avoid parking tickets, hide stuff in dorms, fake IDs, use bathrooms, get discounts on cars and hotels, get into a restaurant without a reservation, get liquids on a plane, get out of some speeding tickets, save cash at a movie, and more…
It may be almost 8 minutes long, but I guarantee you’ll learn something new that pays. Or you can have your 8 minutes back… no questions asked. Well at least it’s add free. Because UncleNalts don’t run no ads, and he’s no big-headed “partner.” No sir. He’s just your crazy Uncle, and you may be glad he’s not your dad… but he always makes reunions a bit more interesting.
