It is much easier to remember things with visualization. Most people are not auditory learners. Listening to information is not the best way to learn. Some people are better at it than others, but visual information is often remembered much better.
Do we remember the historical events we read about in history class as well as if we saw the movie? Visualization paired with reading or hearing the information is a powerful memory tool. Knowing how to use visualization to your advantage will give you a definite edge.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
To remember things with visualization, write down your list of things to remember. It could be in a specific order or in a random order depending on how you have to remember it.
Create a visual scene in your mind of something happening involving each of those things. The visual reel can be anything you want it to be as long as it makes sense to you. It does not have to make sense to anyone else. For example, if you have to remember a short list of groceries that includes bread, onions, bar soap, and a magazine, you could imagine a picture in a magazine of an onion making the loaf of bread cry, but it was okay because a bar of soap washes away the breads tears. Okay, that sounds kind of stupid. But remember, it does not have to make sense as long as you can play it in a reel that can be played back. Visualizations are going to be much easier for most people to remember than verbal information is.
Play your visual reel a few times to own it.
