How to remember?

The general idea with most memory techniques is to change whatever boring thing is being inputted into your memory into something that is so colorful, so exciting, and so different from anything you've seen before that you can't possibly forget it.

The more abstract the word, the less memorable it is.

It takes a lot of remembering just to be able to remember.

The art and science of memory is about developing the capacity to quickly create images that link disparate ideas.

Lack of sleep is the enemy of memory.

--Joshua Foer
