Example text

What I find most fascinating is that while learning by rote and repetition can take hours, and often still produces poor results, learning using the Link Method is quick (how long did the story take to conjure up? ), and the recall is usually impeccable. It’s all about context. The Link Method attaches significance to unconnected pieces of information. We put them in a context that attaches them to the real world, with some form of logic, and they become memorable. A trick of the mind I think using the first person is important here, too.

The method is so powerful that often the list sticks for well over 24 hours. I doubt anyone would have that level of success merely by repeating the words over and over to learn by rote. Admittedly, though, this is a mere five words, so let’s add two items and apply the link method to the following seven objects: Boat, Tyre, Parcel, Button, Cabbage, Mouse, Boot. The story I come up with is that I’m drifting lazily in a boat on a calm sea. As I approach the shore, I see a tyre lying in the sand.

You have that same creativity inside you, too, which is why I know that my techniques can transform your memory just as they did mine. So, how did I memorize my first deck of cards? I started by staring at individual cards to see if they reminded me of something familiar – an object or person from my life. For example, I looked at the Jack of Hearts and the face reminded me of my uncle. The 5 Spades looked to me like a hand held out with four fingers and thumb. The 10 Diamonds reminded me of the door to 10 Downing Street (Diamonds reminded me of money or wealth and 10 Downing Street is where the Prime Minister looks after the UK’s prosperity; also the address cued the abbreviation for the card: “10 D”).
