ABOUT the THEORY
With Game 3 you get the theory chapter on EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STEP 3: VISUALISATION:
The term ‘visualisation’ may sound technical to you: it simply means seeing things in your mind’s eye.
The main objective here is: whatever it is you want to remember, you HAVE to change into a picture. Without a picture in your mind’s eye, you cannot remember.
(Well, actually, this is not entirely true: you could go back to one of the main strategies in school: repeat it over and over for 200 times and hope for the best. You notice I am facetious here; and you notice: I DO believe we can do better here.)
The language of the mind is visualisation, and you learn to be aware of this principle and you learn to use it consciously as the third step towards memory success.
Very important: Without mastering this key-element you will NOT recall items EASILY.
Although you use it already every day, for the purposes of memory techniques it has to be made clear what the function of VISUALISATION is in remembering techniques.
In the theory part, EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STEP 3: VISUALISATION is covered to understand (and apply) this principle.
Here are the topics covered in this chapter:
1. What is 'Visualisation?
2. First Step to Practice Visualisation
3. Towards 'difficult' Words: Introducing two helpful Rules
Training and Testing
5. Let's remember 10 difficult words in correct sequence
6. Tips & Hints
7. Summary & Outlook
In more detail:
1. What is Visualisation?
Here you find a definition and you learn why this principle is so important for memory success.
2. First step to practice Visualisation
Be guided through the first exercise, and realise that visualisation is something very natural.
3. Towards ‘difficult’ words: Introducing two helpful rules
So we have covered visualisation with easy words; here you move to seeing things in your mind’s eye that previously would have been considered ‘difficult’. You notice I put difficult in inverted commas; once you have learned what to do, there is no easy or difficult any more. The question then is: Do you have a picture? Or not? Two ideas will be introduced that prove very helpful here.
You even learn that you don’t have to be perfect. A good approximation is just good enough.
4. Training & Testing
You will be guided through 7 exercises. Very detailed. So detailed that you will pick up this step = this part of memory skills so very easily and effortlessly. Exercise 1 is simpler words; in exercise 2 the following words will be used:
You will agree: If you can do that, then anything is now possible for you.
Some exercises are good pointers on how to practice in everyday life.
One exercise even deals with names (many people find names difficult).
Or, a little bit gimmicky: How to remember all the Eurovision entries.
This is a good basis.
Either you devise your own exercises.
Or you invest in Game 3.
Game 3 contains 50 exercises, a great variety and eclectic mix.
Having mastered all these 50 exercise: You are really well prepared to remember any word that comes your way.
Yes, you could devise your own exercises.
It is simple.
In a very playful way you learn visualisation, the third essential step of memory techniques.
It is fast.
This is by far the easiest and fasted way to master the third step of Remembering.
And isn’t that what you want?
5. Let’s remember 10 difficult words in correct sequence
Combine Visualisation (step 3) and Location = Journey Method (step 2) and to your friends this will seem like wizardry. For you it is a skill that you learned step by step. With this part the art of rembering is very impressive indeed.
6. Tips & Hints
Here you find very practical ideas to get going with visualisation; from very playful to incorporating them into your daily life. Also: Teach kids; wouldn’t that be of immense value if kids would go through school without any difficulty. Get cracking with names and even foreign language vocabulary. And if that’s not enough: There are also tips to bolster creativity. Again, creativity is natural (I admit more to kids than adults), and creativity and fantasy make life really, really colourful. And that’s just another bonus when practicing step 3: Visualisation.
7. Summary & Outlook
Visualisation completes the trilogy of MEMORY TECHNIQUES BASICS: Association (step 1) + Location (step 2) + Visualisation (step 3).
We started out with this definition:
Whatever you want to remember, you have to change into a picture and place it onto a journey.
That definition stays. Even if you want to apply Memory Techniques to specialised areas.
Sometimes people ask me: I want to remember a deck of cards; or numbers; or French, etc.
Then here is my answer:
Having mastered the basics (Game 1 + 2 + 3), then these specialised areas will be really easy to master.
If you have not invested time to master the basics, then it is virtually impossible to do advanced stuff.
It is as simple as that.
Click on the NavBar on the left: ADVANCED MEMORY TECHNIQUES.
I am working on the following areas:
Mastered the basics? Then it is easy.
Therefore: Please tell me that you have mastered the basics, then I help you with any of the above topics. Let me know what you want to achieve, and I’ll guide. That is my promise to you. CLICK HERE to contact me.
Pay attention to this:
Start learning about remembering a long time before you have to sit exams and when you have to deal with panic as well. It is easy, however memory techniques is a skill learned over time.
It is smart to plan ahead, and get the basics right.
For some students it is easy and straight forward, and for some, well they have to practice a little bit longer. However, just like any other skill, may it be learning how to drive, or how to type, or how to bake a cake, EVERYBODY can learn it.
Just like the finger-exercises when learning to play the piano, so play and practice this game. And you only have to practice for a rather short time. And then it becomes second nature to you; you may call it even: it becomes normal.
What do you get for your €9.99?
You get an elegant and easy to use exercise tool AND all the theory you need.
All that for 9.99 euros.
That is the price of a small book.
It is definitely less than a grind.
And it is a fraction of the pain you eliminate when studying for exams.
Remembering increases your confidence!!!
Remembering decreases your revision time. Quite a lot.
Here you make one of the best investments you ever in your life.
And remember: You can contact me personally
What else could I offer you to get started?
Practice Game 3 and Life becomes more interesting.
More colourful, more exciting.
To create a picture = visualisation you have to use the principle of creativity. This goes hand in hand with fantasy. Just watch kids and you know what I mean. When you practice this part of remembering more often than not you will giggle and even laugh outrightly as so many ideas come to mind. And isn’t that just delightful.
Should you feel you still cannot master this step, then you can contact me.
As often as you wish.
Until you do have mastered this step.
Your only decision you have to make is: When do you get started?
You cannot fail, as I guarantee you that I will stand by your side until you succeed.
And once you start practicing: You WILL succeed.
Going into overdrive. With Game 3 you can learn to remember words, even if you don’t know what the words mean. Now, that should catch the attention of your friends. Have you ever watched the film: The 39 steps by Alfred Hitchcock; then you know what I mean. See the list of strange words above, starting with: taw, adumbrate, condign, etc.
You know the basics: good. Click on Advanced Memory Techniques and you can contact me with any of the topics covered and I will guide you towards mastery in that area.
With Game 3 you get all the theory you ever need AND all the practice you ever need to master Step 3: Visualisation
