Have ever enjoyed a game where you have to take a look at the things within a box for a restricted time and afterward you have to name as much of those items as you can recall? If you have never enjoyed that game yet, try doing it and vie how well you perform.
Now, if you want to better your capability to recall items in a set of images or a in a list, you should try making a story out of the things on that set. For instance, you have to recall all the things in a list containing a coconut tree, golf ball, a gorilla, a box, snakes, banana, a farmer and an axe. If you try to remember them as unmatched items on the list you might find yourself having problem recalling them afterward. But if you try to create a story out of those things on the list, you will find the recalling process simple, like this.
A golf ball fell from a tree of coconut straight to a box. A gorilla came to pick it up and offer it to a farmer. In trade, the farmer gave the gorilla a pile of bananas. Anyway, a group of hungry snakes saw the banana; they hit the gorilla to take the banana away for themselves. The farmer does not want the hungry snakes to have the gorilla reward so he killed the all snakes by using an axe.
When creating a story out of set to memorize a list, be sure that you will just use the items that belong to the set, because if you try to include some items that are not truly on the set, your memory might be ignored and you might mistakenly recall them as a real member of the set later.
Now single way to remember these tasks would be to write them down on a notepaper piece, and tick off as they are done. In many cases this is a helpful thing to perform, but unluckily it is not an amazing technique to better memory.
A much more perfect technique to better is to spend a few minutes to make a fun and remarkable story in your mind; one that contains everything on your to do list.
Begin by imagining monster notepad, large enough to contain all the pictures of your story, and with the pages flicking over as the story unfolds.
