You can only learn by doing.

Remembering Names & Faces:
"People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
People will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget
how you made them feel.
NAME is the sweetest sound to a person's ears
-MOTIVATION (why remember)
---E: exercise (practice makes progress -> makes permanent)
---S: say the person's name
---U: use the name (not abuse) 4* during conversation
---A: ask about the name
(What I hear, I forget.
What I see, I remember.
What I do, I understand.)
Turn that name into a picture
(6 seconds syndrome)
---E: end (say goodbye by their name)
Lookup Top 100 names of your country and picture it in your mind
Share and teach it to other people,
because when you teach something,
you learn it twice as fast.
Learning is remembering.
1#what you know about the subject
2# situational thing
3# your limitations temporarily
1# take notes
2# ask questions
S: state - all learning is state dependent
1# Raise your state by: changing thoughts & body
When "I" teach something,
I gotta learn it 2* as fast.
After learning something new after 48 hours 80% is gone.

To manage something start by measuring it
Basic association = a logical association between two things
Don't look for perfection, look for progress
No such thing as failure just failure to learn
What you resist persists

you get to keep them.
Say the opposite (of ANT), make it positive and make it more empowering.

Who you spend time with is who you become.

8 arouse (better recall when place/env of encode is the same; smell) #pavlov
An un-stimulated brain gets distracted easily
Reading faster increases your comprehension

Hold the book at an angle to maximize the size of the words and maintain good breathing.
Use visual pacer.
Take advantage of your peripheral vision.
