PREFACE

PREFACE

Memory systems date back to antiquity. In ancient times memory was vitally important since there was no written language. It was memory techniques and systems that enabled storytellers to remember stories, poems and songs, and orators to remember their speeches.

The importance of a memory system has not lost its importance over the centuries. Today, anyone wanting to be effective in his or her job must develop and exercise an efficient memory. Most jobs require us to store millions of pieces of information. We must have immediate mental access to company procedures, systems, products and services. We must also be aware of similar items from our competitors.

We need to remember countless names and faces and relevant facts about people with whom we meet and interact. Added to this, we are asked to accurately remember information discussed in meetings, during dozens of transactions and a variety of other details. We are, in fact, a walking computer.

Most of us use only a fraction of our memory capability. The way we improve our memory is not by improving intelligence or mental capacity, but by actively applying the fundamental principles of memory improvement and using the variety of memory techniques and systems similar to those presented in this book.
