Improving Your Memory through Concentration

The purpose of this section is to focus specifically on how you can use the C.C.A.R.S. system to improve your retention and recall of information. The C.C.A.R.S. acronym can be used to “remember how to remember” important information. Since many people feel they are “terrible” at remembering names, this system will focus specifically on how to use C.C.A.R.S. to remember names.

C = Commit

Are you good at remembering names? A majority of people don’t think they are. It’s not that they can’t, it’s just that they haven’t made up their minds that this is something important they want to do. Remembering doesn’t just happen. You have to give your mind what’s called a “determining tendency.” In other words, you need to make a conscious commitment to remember names. How do you feel when someone remembers your name? Probably you are flattered. It indicates you were important enough for them to make the effort to remember. How do you feel about people who can remember names? If you think of them in a positive way decide right now that this is something you’re going to “get good at.”
