Wow. This book is so good. It’s about…I can’t remember.
How many times have you read something and then, five seconds later, you have to go back and reread that same page because you can’t remember what you read? Here’s the solution for that. Check this out. Hey, guys, Ron White here. Now, we’ve all been there. We’ve all read a page and then, two seconds later, we have to go back and reread that page because we have no idea what we just read.
Here’s the solution for that, and this process can be broken down into six easy steps. Let’s start with step number one. Don’t try to memorize as you’re reading. But, instead, read with a highlighter or a marker and underline or highlight the key words as you are reading, or take notes as you’re reading. But, don’t try to memorize as you read.
Number two, is you need a technique or a tool called the Mind Palace, or it’s called the Method of Loci. Essentially, what it is, is you remember a map of a room. Stand in the doorway of every room in your house and number five pieces of furniture in each room. The first room, you [inaudible] one, two, three, four, five. It might be desk, bed, TV, picture, plant. Then go to the next room and number that room six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. Good things will be desks, or chairs, or computers, or windows, or showers, or sinks. This is your Mind Palace and this is actually going to hold the data that you are memorizing in the book, which lead us to step number three. Step number three is, whatever you want to remember, you need to turn it into a picture. Let’s say you’re reading a book about Abraham Lincoln. The picture for Abraham Lincoln could be a penny because Abraham Lincoln is on the penny.
And maybe you want to remember he was born in Kentucky, so you’re going to need a picture for Kentucky. Maybe you would use the Kentucky Derby. And maybe you want to remember he was the 16th President. You need to create a picture for 16 and you might use a car for that because you get your driver’s license when you’re 16 years old. So, everything you have highlighted or everything you have underlined, you’re going to create pictures for to remember those highlighted or underlined words. Pretty easy, right. All right. Let’s move on to step number four. Step number four is, is you use the pieces of furniture in your room to store the data.
The first point that you want to memorize is Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky. So, you think of a penny and a penny is racing around the Kentucky Derby. Now, you take picture and you put it on the first piece of furniture in your house. Maybe the first piece of furniture in your house is a table, so a penny racing around the Kentucky Derby. The second thing you want to remember is Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president. So, you see a penny for Lincoln, and the penny is driving a car for 16, and you see that on the second piece of furniture, which may be the refrigerator. You see a penny driving a car around the refrigerator.
Every point that you have underlined, you turn into a picture, and you would see on pieces of furniture around your house — five in a room. And that’s how you remember points from a book. All right, guys. Let’s go on to step number five. Step five is simply, if you want to remember five points from every chapter, you use one room to represent every chapter because you have five pieces of furniture in every room. If you want to remember ten points from a chapter, easy enough. You just use two rooms to represent that chapter. And, if you want to remember 15 points from a chapter, easy enough. You just use three rooms for that chapter. So, those are the five steps that you need to memorize what you read. If you want to remember dates, like you’re reading a history book, there is an optional sixth step. To remember dates, you need to create pictures for the date. For example, maybe you use a Cupid for Valentine’s Day, for February. For March, you might use soldiers marching to remember the month of March.
April showers to remember the month of April. So, that’s an optional sixth step, creating pictures for the months to remember important dates if you’re reading a history book.
So, in recap, number one, don’t memorize as you read. But, instead, highlight or underline as you read. Number two, create a Mind Palace, locations in a room where you’re going to store the data. Number three, turn whatever you want to recall into a picture. See it as an animated image. Number four, store those pictures on the pieces of furniture around your house in your Mind Palace to remember the details of what you read. Number five, you segment the chapters.
You put everything about one chapter in one room. And then, finally, the optional sixth step, if you want to remember dates, you just need to create pictures for those dates.
