MEMORY sounds like a natural talent, it turns out to be a LEARNABLE SKILL. Incredible MEMORY capacities are sleeping inside all of us only IF WE USE THE RIGHT TECHNIQUES TO AWAKEN THEM. So ditch the bad study habits you learned in school and start using some of the following useful steps. Gallup did a study on how to improve the MEMORIES of bartenders.
Students listened to information and an hour later they were tested on what they had REMEMBERED. Their recall spiked up 30 percent if they had sat and did nothing for ten minutes after they listened to the data. Your mind needs rest and space to consolidate and store the knowledge.
Research has revealed that quizzing yourself is very important. The evidence shows that taking practice tests leads to better RETENTION than any other technique. When you retrieve knowledge over and over again you know where to find it the next time. REMEMBER DELIBERATE PRACTICE, MANY HOURS.
In a recent study; The students were assigned to deliver a lesson on the material that they had learned. One week after their presentation of the lesson, they were tested on the material. Their RECALL, MEMORY, was much better than before they had presented the lesson. The best way to learn something, and REMEMBER it, is to teach it or explain it to someone. BECAUSE RETRIEVING SOMETHING HELPS YOU REMEMBER IT.
WHAT MAKES A GREAT PERFUMER, A GREAT EVALUATOR, A GREAT BARTENDER; DELIBERATE PRACTICE AND TEACHING OTHERS YOUR LESSONS. CONTRIBUTE TO OTHERS, IMPROVE YOUR MEMORY.
