The Speed Reading Mastery online course will help you save valuable time and stay ahead as you read faster with greater focus, comprehension, and retention.

Imagine if you could learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, master an instrument or simply read the unread books on your bookshelf.

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SPEED READING

Most people don’t realise you can improve your reading speed. Many of us believe we are either a good or a bad reader.

The truth is there is no such thing as a bad reader- just an untrained reader.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Jordan Harry - TEDx Speaker (1.9M Views) | Mixed Martial Artist | Public Speaker

I am a memory and speed reading coach, and in the past few years, I have taught over 20,000 people from 147 countries speed reading, memory and public speaking.

When I was 10 I had a speech impediment which left me struggling with speaking in public and reading.

I now read seven times faster than the average reader (1,500 words per minute), the CEO at StudyFast and an international public speaker.

My mission is to make speed reading and memory training accessible to all.

Featured on the BBC, TED, Virgin StartUp and Metro.

WHAT OUR LEARNERS SAY

Kelly-Ann- Marketing Executive

"I did the course over a period of 7 days and my wpm almost doubled and I had a 10% increase in my comprehension. I went from 340 words per minute to 616 words per minute which demonstrates that the techniques genuinely work."

Danielle - University Lecturer

"Speed reading is intimidating but this course has made it feel possible to genuinely improve my reading speed. I learned some valuable lessons and takeaways and looking forward to applying them."

Sara - Undergraduate Student

"Everything is justified so concisely and with the science to corroborate it. It also feels more like a personal course than it does someone just talking at you. It was also just a friendly and calm course; it was almost refreshing to turn to the next section.

I also loved the extra bit of guidance at the end for people with dyslexia. I don't personally have it but it was nice that those with possible reading difficulties were addressed as well."

1. What is the Memory Mastery Course?: Hi. When is the last thing you? I'm Julian. That's need to. So you ready for the filming today? Sure. So the documentation. What was your name again? They hate it when that happens. Do you wish you commit more names? It's a common problem, and it's embarrassing. But one thing that's worth noting, no one has a bad memory. You do have a good memory because you remember certain things, and that's because you were paying attention before is important or the person was attractive. Interesting how the human brain waas and it's easy when you know how. Because memory is a habit and even the world champions forget things. If they don't use the strategies, I'm gonna show you on an online course. Let's take a look. So the online course she gonna go over four hours of video content, covering topics from names, speaking in public, remembering book notes, language and even has done a martial arts faster. On top of that, I'm also going to give you a certificate when you complete the course so you can use it on your Lincoln and your CV. My name's joined Harry Last 10 Ice never speech in bed which meant speaking in public I'm reading was my biggest nightmare because I couldn't pronounce the words. I didn't understand them. Therefore, I couldn't remember them. Fast forward to today. I don't have a comprehension rate off 80% when reading seven times faster than the average person. 1500. What's a minute? And I'm gonna show you how you can improve your everyday memory. But there's a guarantee. If in one year, like all of our online courses, you don't get the results you want, I promise you will give your money back. Why? Well, memory is one of most powerful tools you can have. And if in one year you don't improve everyday memory, we'll give you money back, No questions asked, because we haven't done our job. That's how strongly I believe in this course on all of our online courses. What do you have to lease in gold today and how to improve your everyday memory? Si se 2. Welcome to the Memory Mastery Course: Hey there. Welcome to the memory mastery course. Firstly, thank you for trusting me to take your memory and your ability to learn anything faster to next level. So what to expect? Well, once you've completed the first lesson, which is this you understand who I am, what you'll be learning of these next 30 days on how to get the most from the course. Before we start any lesson, we must begin with the end of mind, thanks to our friend Stephen coffee. So, as you'll see, you'll see what we're covering. But who am I? Well, my name's Children, Harry. Now, of course, hopefully you will. You know who I am because you're watching this video. But I'm the CEO of study fast. But not only that. When I started it many years ago, I started out by myself and now unfortunate enough to have a team behind me which has helped us teach over 7000 people and hopefully with the years to come, many more from over 140 different countries online and in person on how to be different, faster and had to remember more so ultimately you can learn anything faster. So Here's the team. As I said, I'm not by myself. We started off with Jack. Jack has great skills and designed from music, spends tohave courses created to the website which your own hopefully on a weekly basis San No, only sama Fantastic communicator. But he was also one of my first students. Housemates Best friend on has dyslexia. So for him to be teaching on a monthly basis is phenomenal. Vienna. Well, once again, I know one of my strengths is not writing and Bannon that is her strong. So with the blocks, a lot of our content which ou info creates she is the monster behind inviting again. Crow, also one of my best friends, is the head of marketing Creative. So where that comes to photography, videography anything to do Business development. Allenco is involved with Aunt He when he gets too busy, passes a lot off the video coffee work over to Sam and occasionally he also does difficulty as well for the team. So we're growing and hopefully with the years to come, the team will expand. So what to expect over the next 30 days? It takes 21 days and very studies will say 60 and 120 but 21 days to change a habit. And I say change because that means breaking it and installing a new one. So over the four weeks, you'll be going of some really practical, short impactful videos with drills throughout to make sure we form a new habit to prove your memory. So Week one is more but introductory to what to expect. And then we have developed world applications, and this is what makes study fast, completely different to all the other memory courses. What we teach has been around since the Greeks. What we do differently, a study fast, is we've spent many years and continue to create content on how to apply these memories. Jennings to real world applications we tell you'll be learning how to make more names and, if you want to a new language. Week three. Once again remembering book notes, which I think we can all relate to. On top of that, remembering numbers, Long digits, digits, which you'd think weren't possible before this cause and finally wrapping up with remembering scripts. So for those who give talks or if you're constantly reciting scripts, social actor or actress. This will be exciting for you. For those of you who want to potentially land a new sporting skill, how to learn martial arts in half the time Now there's gonna be so much more content available for you. And if you click the link below this video, you will have access to our free private mastermind. You have access directly to myself so you can message me by Facebook and also the other lifelong bonus but consequent content in that group. Anything to do with speeding memory training on much more finally fun fact. Human brain weighs about free pounds. Depending on where you are in the world, that's 1.4 kilograms. That might make more sense to you. Surprisingly, that I take 60% off the dry away is fat, making the brain fattest organ in the body. There's plenty more fun facts that come in Week one before we get into the Practical GC powers. I'll see you in the next lesson 3. Modes of thinking: Hey, everyone, no one lesson to would be looking at visual images. I'm white for mentally visual images, arguably probably the most powerful tool you can use. So promise you'll know by the end of this course why visual images of the most powerful technique for memory by short term and long term so learning points would say, as we mentioned before, I begin with the end in mind inside 4 to 6. You remember the cow. That means nothing to you now, but it will. But in this slide 7 to 11 remember the stream and slide 12 free things to remember to do official images now operations in code boring information like name into meaning for us to remember. Our brains are constantly doing this, taking information and including it in something a motive and visual. And this is how we hold on to take. For example, cow a cow is the norm, at least if you live in the hillsides in England, seeing a cow is quite born on time, so you're not gonna remember you saw a cow on your way to work. However, if this cow was a little bit different, quite abstract, chances are you would remember Chansa. That cow was purple. Excuse my photo shop inability. You would remember this purple cow. You would tell your friends and family about this purple cow for the days and weeks and months and potentially life Time to come. The reason for this is because this isn't normal. Your brain loves things are vivid and abstract, and this is what we need to do with the usual information. And I'll be showing you in the weeks to come. How we can use visual images to learn names, instruments, Marshall Watts on Much more surprisingly, if I was to tell you information right now, you only remember 35%. However, if I add images, you'd remember 65%. This is because Social Science Research Network have found that 65% people are visual learners. It shows attaching visual images to meaning and information stores a lot longer into our memory. And this is something we want to capitalize on when communicating a message. We want people to remember us. Now I should get a quick image just for about three seconds. I want you to now retreat causes video and see how much you remember from that image? I didn't feel that you, but you saw it flash across your screen. No cheating. Don't we want pause it now and see how much you can remember. Okay, I think you'll be surprised how much you remembered from that image. Let's take another look at it. You probably gathered within those three seconds that it was somewhere in Asia, that it waas well lit. Whether it's night time and the lights were on or where for this is daytime that you saw people carts. You saw a burst of colors. Maybe you notice the enemy in the top left corner hand. Or maybe even this person walking that a vote looking quite lost. Two small details of potentially someone carrying a bag. What you found that was that us. As humans, we process visual images 60,000 times faster than text. Within those three seconds you experienced, why would say about 10,000 words per minute, but yet you didn't have to read anything, and you only saw the image for three seconds. This is how powerful visual images are. In fact, studies have shown, if you walk into a room only 20 minutes and you take someone out of the room, they can recall almost perfectly what objects are, where the door is, where the TV is within a couple of seconds. Our brains are incredible. When it comes to special visual information. I want to be aware of this. We can hack it so free things you need to remember when making visual images in the lessons to come. Your visual images need to be vivid. Experiences images to the finite detail to the sweat, to the colors to what happened. Day is, are the windows open? Are they shot? The more vivid, the much easier it is for your brain to encode information on what backwards to attach the information toe. Next, they need to be abstract. As I mentioned before, a cow is nothing special. A papal cattle with my photo shop ability that is abstract. But that's not good enough for us to really remember. We need to make it possible. A visual image for remembering and name like Richard could be Richard Hammond. Richard Hammond driving a race car on There's smoke coming out, the bonnet broken down like it doesn't all the top give episodes. Now that visual image works well for me because I watched Talk it and thats personable for some of you walked in. You might not even know who Richard Hammond is. That wouldn't work. So do not take the examples coming as gospel, you have to find your own personable visual images that you can associate to information. We're talking about association shortly, but please remember these three things. We're making visual images as always to be cap. I hope you remember the cow and I'll be testing you in Listens to come. Surprisingly, you remember the street within only three seconds or what it looked like and given more time, you can pick out even more detail. Finally, the free things to remember. Visual images need to be vivid. They'd be abstract compensable for you to encode boring information information that could be starting a long term memory for years to come. I'll see you next lesson 4. Different types of memory: Welcome back in lesson free, we're gonna talk about association. I mentioned this in lesson to where we need to associate visual images with information such as and name. I'm gonna treat the importance of association and why it's so powerful to do with memory to give you more than understanding and context. So when we do use it to remember things that names and weeks to come, you understand why? So the promise by the end of this course is show you how we don't necessarily need to learn anything new. Take that as a caveat, because what you'll find is we can attach new knowledge to existing knowledge. Well, I would transfer new knowledge and all knowledge to one another on my association is so key for the weight off retrieval. So, before learning new concepts, we need to understand how to attach him to existing information. For example, many of us have bought a new fancy Twinkie BMW, parked it in a car park with a purple sky. Maybe not quiet, but we will bore a new car. No, What happens is were able to use the existing knowledge, often old car, and we want to transfer that to new one. What you find is that many of the things that you learn from this old car here, such as how to change oil, how to fill up in the back here, applies very similar tiu new BMW. So the knowledge that you have for your new car has all come from previous experience. Association is crucial when learning new things because you can transfer. He will transfer your pre existing knowledge to new information. We mentioned transferability just a second ago when learning a new skill, something that you've never done before. So of course, the car situation. You've had a car, you've got a new car. Nothing completely. But what about learning a martial arts which I company and I'm currently learn? Karate? My background is triple job. So how left does triple jump transfer over to writing were simple. I'm able to transfer my knowledge off discipline off day, and they our continued effort to see the big result that being 1% better each day is compound interest slowly adds up to some some better over a week. 40% 14% better two weeks and so on, so forth. Beyond that, I'm accustomed to learning a movement specifically with my body. So I able to understand that twisting my hip is what power comes from fishing off the board . And if I contract for that same movement into when I for a punch, it looks like I've been doing commodity for many months. You'll find that with many athletes, they're able to retire or maybe even switch to another sport or even the business world and succeed very quickly because a lot of skills that they already have, they can associate to that new domain slash environment. All of this adds upto one crucial thing to speed off retrieval. For many of us, it's not forgetfulness that catches us out because often, once we've left the conversation with them, remember what we want to tell that person have any association you have quickly what backwards to decode information that is forgotten. Let's take a name, for example. You mean a guy called Harry straightaway you associate how his name with the visual image off Harry Hill. Okay, having hill for those e that don't know who have you always is a comedian. His board. He wears glasses and a suit quite vivid image, even if you haven't seen him before now what's great is if you forget, How is it name Next time you see him, your eyes a medium he was bored or God is quite ugly. Is not that ugly. That's all subjective. And you like who's he's on TV. Harry Hill. His name's hurry. So what's great by associating balling name my NASA entirely so I can say this like having something quite vivid, exciting and associating it with that. If you forget the first part of information, which is the name you can work off the association. And this has saved me in so many different situations with its high pressure or like pressure, since we can't association is key for existing knowledge for help in the process of learning something new, because we've already been through something quite similar away. But to associate it that secondly attractive transferability off a skill in a completely different domain, able to associate the feeling, the movement, our memories over to a new sport, activity on new skill and finally, what association helps with the most is the speed off retrieval off a certain memory for when it counts the most We have another lesson coming up straight after this and you won't want to miss that. So I'll see you in the next lesson. 5. Different types of memory: it's time to now look at Chungking and Lesson four. By the end of this lesson, I will demonstrate how powerful chunking is when learning a large amounts of information or a new skill. It kind of gives away. What is the name? We're gonna take a deeper dive in in just a moment. So first of all, we're gonna look how chunking is used for complex tasks. Next, we look how banks utilize our ability to chunk to help that long digit on the front car. We'll then see how increased our capacity to take on information. And of course, the first steps we have to take to create a chunk gets in just in the morning. Seems quite simple, especially when you look this good looking right. But a simple time, such as getting dressed on a simple was aiming seen when you actually break it down in terms off putting your right arm through the right sleeve at the right angle to them, Put it across your back, Then get your left arm for the left sleeve on, coordinating both your hands to button up each, but making sure that you don't bet on it, will you miss a hole and you get to top and you realize you're missing a button or the whole. It is quite a complex task, but for many of us in the morning we wake up on bond. I'm instant for is get dressed within the task. Get dressed. There was a whole subcategory off actions that we have to take. But thankfully, due to our brains, Chungking getting dressed as one chunk well able Teoh do such a complex task in the morning . So simply so. The idea of chunking is very simple on banks know this simply What they do is we have found that the short term memory is limited to 4 to 7 pieces of information. So what Baynes do is they separate four digits. So instead of yourself having to learn for a 12 16 digits, you simply just remember the festival. And that is one time. And then you remember the second and then remember the factual and forth, and these are then separated into your memory and you will call them as such. We often this with our phone numbers, are you seven, 29853 1970 on most people use a kind of tempo, that pattern to remember, and it's chant as such reason. Why is what evenings? Remember more by using this method, if you can picture are short term memory, which is often called our working memory. For this reason is, when we're learning or remembering something, it requires mental effort just like a juggler. So when it comes to getting dressed in the morning, if we were to actually learn that skill form, scratch our age now we'd be drug ling. Multiple bits of information get in the top on itself would require free to fall off those skittles at this guy struggling to remember to put your arm for its button up and straight across your back. As you become more skilled, you trunk all those little elements into one, which is known is getting dress on only requires one mental or physical effort in terms of the juggler to keep that in the year. If we then want to get dressed and brush our teeth days us now juggling two things at once on, we now have room, maybe for two more bits of information. Such a blind messages, what we're getting dressed and brushing my teeth, but be careful because we can't order them effectively and efficiently. But what's great by chunking it's were able do multiple tasks were able to hold multiple bits of information in our short term memory given period of time. So the first step to Chungking is to simply focus your attention on the information you want to learn as we use example what they did to get dressed. Brush your teeth from a plateau messages with ease because, of course, this is nothing new to us. But if you want to learn something new, such as for myself. Karate. I can't allow my brain to wonder. I can't get caught up in destruction for my phones. What people next to me it doing have to focus my attention information. I want to land too fast, create the trunk. It sounds obvious, but it's surprising how little attention we give to something. Attention. It's a pro Cassa to memory. If we're not paying attention, were first introduced to someone you think you literally you will forget their name. I was gonna say you forget about remember, gonna name is ironic, but this happens often when were caught up in what we want to say. Next one were first introduced to someone, what, 20 minutes into the conversation, we don't know the name, and it's too late to ask. Simply paying attention and being interested will transform your memory. And every time you remember something, give yourself a pat on the back. Is there a small little things I remember where you put your keys, what she start to believe that you have a good memory. You'll soon see that you really do. Now, if you do get distracted, a great analogy. Excuse to vivid image. Once again, vivid image your brain when making chance is like an octopus. A woman getting dressed. The octopus has tentacles are able to attach onto the value skills that we need to get dressed. However, if we do get distracted, which occasionally happens and we put on our socks, one of those 10 schools can't quite grasp on to the visual skill of making sure the socks of matching. And this is where we make common blunders, simple things of a member where we put our keys. It requires Chungking to remember the visual space where we left it. But the moment when we place our keys if we got distracted. The Octopus never made that connection off where we place it. So when we come back, we generally have no idea where we put them because in the moment of time of placing it without destructive. So I hope what you on this course you are folks and soldier on this course and you don't have Facebook. We listen to music in the background, give me undivided attention, and this is the same for any new skill that you want to them, so to review, we understand now how chunking is used for complex tasks such as getting dressed in the morning. Why remembering your bank card and your phone number is made effortlessly when we use chunks, and how it's able to increase our capacity to learn information of up to 16 digits by simply talking it and four bits of information. And, of course, the first set to make a chunk for any member is the pay attention I would see in the next lesson. 6. Mental challenge : welcome everyone to a week to on lesson one of the memory Monastery course it's Jordan. Harry here today on I'm going to start this week with a mental challenge. Reason being is we want to get your mind and thinking into the modoff diffused into the focus before we introduce you some new concepts. So just second I'm gonna show you a sentence within a sentence. It has free mistakes are we deport the video in just a moment. What you're looking at sentence Give yourself time to think about the sentence. Notice the too obvious ones and try to think differently about the 3rd 1 Allow yourself to locate from a different perspective. So without further t Hey, we got okay. Hopefully you mansion notice to off the mistakes. Now we have a look that is old now The 1st 2 are easy to discover. Hopefully you noticed that the U. S on the Tripoli's in the sentence on DFO wants a little trickier to notice. The 1st 1 is only obvious when you change your perspective. Hopefully you got distracted or larger mind to wonder during the challenge and you were then able to see figure out the 3rd 1 What we tried to get you to do that was go from an object on a meta level, thinking the objective level thinking is where you notice straightaway. The two objective mistakes the meta level thinking comes once you realize that the Fed is over. It's not over now. Hopefully know. Everyone got called by that one. But if you did now, looking back it, you'll see and catch yourself. It's quite ironic, but this is how we want you to be, for at this course, come with an open mind. Get yourself in just defused mode of thinking, which we mentioned in Week one, which will help you with your learning throughout the course until next time I'll see you in an excessive 7. TECHNIQUE - Visual images: Hey, everyone, no one lesson to would be looking at visual images. I'm white for mentally visual images, arguably probably the most powerful tool you can use. So promise you'll know by the end of this course why visual images of the most powerful technique for memory by short term and long term so learning points would say, as we mentioned before, I begin with the end in mind inside 4 to 6. You remember the cow. That means nothing to you now, but it will. But in this slide 7 to 11 remember the stream and slide 12 free things to remember to do official images now operations in code boring information like name into meaning for us to remember.

You would tell your friends and family about this purple cow for the days and weeks and months and potentially life Time to come. The reason for this is because this isn't normal. Your brain loves things are vivid and abstract, and this is what we need to do with the usual information. And I'll be showing you in the weeks to come.

Experiences images to the finite detail to the sweat, to the colors to what happened. Day is, are the windows open? Are they shot? The more vivid, the much easier it is for your brain to encode information on what backwards to attach the information toe. Next, they need to be abstract. As I mentioned before, a cow is nothing special. A papal cattle with my photo shop ability that is abstract. But that's not good enough for us to really remember. We need to make it possible. A visual image for remembering and name like Richard could be Richard Hammond. Richard Hammond driving a race car on There's smoke coming out, the bonnet broken down like it doesn't all the top give episodes. Now that visual image works well for me because I watched Talk it and thats personable for some of you walked in. You might not even know who Richard Hammond is. That wouldn't work. So do not take the examples coming as gospel, you have to find your own personable visual images that you can associate to information. We're talking about association shortly, but please remember these three things. We're making visual images as always to be cap. I hope you remember the cow and I'll be testing you in Listens to come. Surprisingly, you remember the street within only three seconds or what it looked like and given more time, you can pick out even more detail. Finally, the free things to remember. Visual images need to be vivid. They'd be abstract compensable for you to encode boring information information that could be starting a long term memory for years to come. I'll see you next lesson 8. TECHNIQUE - Association : Welcome back in lesson free, we're gonna talk about association. I mentioned this in lesson to where we need to associate visual images with information such as and name. I'm gonna treat the importance of association and why it's so powerful to do with memory to give you more than understanding and context. So when we do use it to remember things that names and weeks to come, you understand why? So the promise by the end of this course is show you how we don't necessarily need to learn anything new. Take that as a caveat, because what you'll find is we can attach new knowledge to existing knowledge. Well, I would transfer new knowledge and all knowledge to one another on my association is so key for the weight off retrieval. So, before learning new concepts, we need to understand how to attach him to existing information. For example, many of us have bought a new fancy Twinkie BMW, parked it in a car park with a purple sky. Maybe not quiet, but we will bore a new car. No, What happens is were able to use the existing knowledge, often old car, and we want to transfer that to new one. What you find is that many of the things that you learn from this old car here, such as how to change oil, how to fill up in the back here, applies very similar tiu new BMW. So the knowledge that you have for your new car has all come from previous experience. Association is crucial when learning new things because you can transfer. He will transfer your pre existing knowledge to new information. We mentioned transferability just a second ago when learning a new skill, something that you've never done before. So of course, the car situation. You've had a car, you've got a new car. Nothing completely. But what about learning a martial arts which I company and I'm currently learn? Karate? My background is triple job. So how left does triple jump transfer over to writing were simple. I'm able to transfer my knowledge off discipline off day, and they our continued effort to see the big result that being 1% better each day is compound interest slowly adds up to some some better over a week. 40% 14% better two weeks and so on, so forth. Beyond that, I'm accustomed to learning a movement specifically with my body. So I able to understand that twisting my hip is what power comes from fishing off the board . And if I contract for that same movement into when I for a punch, it looks like I've been doing commodity for many months. You'll find that with many athletes, they're able to retire or maybe even switch to another sport or even the business world and succeed very quickly because a lot of skills that they already have, they can associate to that new domain slash environment. All of this adds upto one crucial thing to speed off retrieval. For many of us, it's not forgetfulness that catches us out because often, once we've left the conversation with them, remember what we want to tell that person have any association you have quickly what backwards to decode information that is forgotten. Let's take a name, for example. You mean a guy called Harry straightaway you associate how his name with the visual image off Harry Hill. Okay, having hill for those e that don't know who have you always is a comedian. His board. He wears glasses and a suit quite vivid image, even if you haven't seen him before now what's great is if you forget, How is it name Next time you see him, your eyes a medium he was bored or God is quite ugly. Is not that ugly. That's all subjective. And you like who's he's on TV. Harry Hill. His name's hurry. So what's great by associating balling name my NASA entirely so I can say this like having something quite vivid, exciting and associating it with that. If you forget the first part of information, which is the name you can work off the association. And this has saved me in so many different situations with its high pressure or like pressure, since we can't association is key for existing knowledge for help in the process of learning something new, because we've already been through something quite similar away. But to associate it that secondly attractive transferability off a skill in a completely different domain, able to associate the feeling, the movement, our memories over to a new sport, activity on new skill and finally, what association helps with the most is the speed off retrieval off a certain memory for when it counts the most We have another lesson coming up straight after this and you won't want to miss that. So I'll see you in the next lesson. 9. TECHNIQUE - Chunking: it's time to now look at Chungking and Lesson four. By the end of this lesson, I will demonstrate how powerful chunking is when learning a large amounts of information or a new skill. It kind of gives away. What is the name? We're gonna take a deeper dive in in just a moment. So first of all, we're gonna look how chunking is used for complex tasks. Next, we look how banks utilize our ability to chunk to help that long digit on the front car. We'll then see how increased our capacity to take on information. And of course, the first steps we have to take to create a chunk gets in just in the morning. Seems quite simple, especially when you look this good looking right. But a simple time, such as getting dressed on a simple was aiming seen when you actually break it down in terms off putting your right arm through the right sleeve at the right angle to them, Put it across your back, Then get your left arm for the left sleeve on, coordinating both your hands to button up each, but making sure that you don't bet on it, will you miss a hole and you get to top and you realize you're missing a button or the whole. It is quite a complex task, but for many of us in the morning we wake up on bond. I'm instant for is get dressed within the task. Get dressed. There was a whole subcategory off actions that we have to take. But thankfully, due to our brains, Chungking getting dressed as one chunk well able Teoh do such a complex task in the morning . So simply so. The idea of chunking is very simple on banks know this simply What they do is we have found that the short term memory is limited to 4 to 7 pieces of information. So what Baynes do is they separate four digits. So instead of yourself having to learn for a 12 16 digits, you simply just remember the festival. And that is one time. And then you remember the second and then remember the factual and forth, and these are then separated into your memory and you will call them as such. We often this with our phone numbers, are you seven, 29853 1970 on most people use a kind of tempo, that pattern to remember, and it's chant as such reason. Why is what evenings? Remember more by using this method, if you can picture are short term memory, which is often called our working memory. For this reason is, when we're learning or remembering something, it requires mental effort just like a juggler. So when it comes to getting dressed in the morning, if we were to actually learn that skill form, scratch our age now we'd be drug ling. Multiple bits of information get in the top on itself would require free to fall off those skittles at this guy struggling to remember to put your arm for its button up and straight across your back. As you become more skilled, you trunk all those little elements into one, which is known is getting dress on only requires one mental or physical effort in terms of the juggler to keep that in the year. If we then want to get dressed and brush our teeth days us now juggling two things at once on, we now have room, maybe for two more bits of information. Such a blind messages, what we're getting dressed and brushing my teeth, but be careful because we can't order them effectively and efficiently. But what's great by chunking it's were able do multiple tasks were able to hold multiple bits of information in our short term memory given period of time. So the first step to Chungking is to simply focus your attention on the information you want to learn as we use example what they did to get dressed. Brush your teeth from a plateau messages with ease because, of course, this is nothing new to us. But if you want to learn something new, such as for myself. Karate. I can't allow my brain to wonder. I can't get caught up in destruction for my phones. What people next to me it doing have to focus my attention information. I want to land too fast, create the trunk. It sounds obvious, but it's surprising how little attention we give to something. Attention. It's a pro Cassa to memory. If we're not paying attention, were first introduced to someone you think you literally you will forget their name. I was gonna say you forget about remember, gonna name is ironic, but this happens often when were caught up in what we want to say. Next one were first introduced to someone, what, 20 minutes into the conversation, we don't know the name, and it's too late to ask. Simply paying attention and being interested will transform your memory. And every time you remember something, give yourself a pat on the back. Is there a small little things I remember where you put your keys, what she start to believe that you have a good memory. You'll soon see that you really do. Now, if you do get distracted, a great analogy. Excuse to vivid image. Once again, vivid image your brain when making chance is like an octopus. A woman getting dressed. The octopus has tentacles are able to attach onto the value skills that we need to get dressed. However, if we do get distracted, which occasionally happens and we put on our socks, one of those 10 schools can't quite grasp on to the visual skill of making sure the socks of matching. And this is where we make common blunders, simple things of a member where we put our keys. It requires Chungking to remember the visual space where we left it. But the moment when we place our keys if we got distracted. The Octopus never made that connection off where we place it. So when we come back, we generally have no idea where we put them because in the moment of time of placing it without destructive. So I hope what you on this course you are folks and soldier on this course and you don't have Facebook. We listen to music in the background, give me undivided attention, and this is the same for any new skill that you want to them, so to review, we understand now how chunking is used for complex tasks such as getting dressed in the morning. Why remembering your bank card and your phone number is made effortlessly when we use chunks, and how it's able to increase our capacity to learn information of up to 16 digits by simply talking it and four bits of information. And, of course, the first set to make a chunk for any member is the pay attention I would see in the next lesson. 10. NAMES - Spaced repetition : isn't to you. We're now looking at spaced repetition and how you can use this in a conversation and afterwards to remember someone's name. How exactly should use them the first You want to repeat the name back to the Passen straight away. This is great for two reasons. It ensures that you've pronounce her name correctly. This is highly important in high stakes situations, because pronouncing someone's name might as we know it could be the best compliment. But if you pronounce it, we even get it wrong. Well, it's the best in so, but not only that. This immediately proves to your brain that is important to remember. So by simply vocalizing it, I'm retrieving it straight away. You've shown to your brain this important need. Hold onto this and we don't forget things that are important or that are attractive. Next user occasionally for a conversation. Now don't go overboard and be like, uh, what's your name? My name is Georgia. What you form to him. Oh, I'm from Jordan. I love Children. And to tell me, Jonah, when was this time to it? And you went back to him? Okay, Gets a bit too much, but undergoing this kinds of retrieval process is brilliant for practice in that Newman pathway for your brain. On. On top of that, if you feel like you're losing someone saying someone's name lights up a part of the brain that gets attention again, my name is a sweet sound. Finally, we want to use it when you leave. So when you leave the conversation, say our It was lovely meeting you, Georgia No. One. Is this great for your memory to prove to yourself that you have, in fact, remember this person's name? That's fantastic for relationships because you've proven to have a person. Hey, look, you're important enough to me. I remember your name, and if they forget yours, it makes them feel bad. But ultimately we're looking. I improving your memory on, of course, a softer skill. It improves your relationships. Now this lesson was short, sharp. No, every lesson will be like this, but this is one where you can take right now when you can practice in every interaction. So I'll see you in the next lesson. 11. NAMES - Association : less than free using you, potentially my favorite technique for remembering names so I won't hold back. Let's get in a stray into it. The first technique you wouldn't do when you're using association is you want to associate that person with someone you already know. So, for example, my best friends and apologies for my friends watching This is Adam. Adam, you can see is on the right hand side. Now whenever I meet someone called Adam I. Inslee picture my best friend, Adam. I picked to the emotions attached to him on I picked to the traits of Adam. He's a bodybuilder. So since I make this Adam this new Adam pitch, my best friend, I picked to this new Adam who's huge my security on like a say. The emotions attached this Adam instantly. I'm warmed them, however, if you can't think of someone you already know features so as mentioned before, Adam is a bodybuilder. But what if you meet someone and you can't think of someone you already know? But they have quite a long nose. For example, if I meet someone called Heavy and he's quite a long nose, I think of Henry Hoover now. Caution. You don't want to tell people Design what their associations are as it can be Quite passing . Was great is if I miss or I can't quite remember the name of the association and I'm way off. I would like a red Hoover. Him Henry Hoover is Henry and at times of court myself. And be like, Ah, him, Henry. So what you want to do is you want to make it easy for your brain. You wanna have these multiple layers thes, almost backups if you can picture like that. But you forget the name, you remember the visual image. And if you can't remember the visual image, remember the feature. I'm finally, as you know not finally, we've got one more to come. It's quite abstract one. So it's a bonus one. So we'll say this one is the final one. We have a bonus feature in just a second. Celebrities picture them, relate them to a celebrity with same name. Let's take me for example. My name is Jordan. Harry. So, in one way you remember my name is you convict to Michael Jordan. Excuse my photo shop ability. Slam dunking on Prince Harry on Did you see Prince Harry here looking quite distressed. Now the more vivid that you can see these visual images, the easier it is for your brain to hook onto. These are brain loves humor. Things are gory and vivid. So you won't forget this image. However, when I was at school, because my name is John Harry in the UK the last name comes first in the register. No, I never asked my teachers what they pictured when they would encode my name. But this is why guest, Because often at school I'd be called Harry Jordan. They assume that my first name is Harry. And even when I told him it's Children, they would forget it and still call me Harry. So what they picked it was Harry was the dominant feature that you see. Prince Harry is eating a bowl of Wheaties and Michael Jordan now, Like I said, I don't know if this was the image they had. I'm pretty close, I'm sure. So it's very key that when we meet someone when we encode their name because the name is a born but of information, we have to be extremely clear and vivid on the visual image that we represent to the association. And finally our bonus one. What happens when you meet someone with quite unique name? It's very tricky and you feel bad because you don't want to call them by the nickname you want to call them by their full name. But you fear that you may mispronounce it now. When I was in Hong Kong, I'm a young lady called Chow Chill. Okay, I thank him shall chill Quite tricky name and nothing came to my mind as soon she said it. And I don't know about you However, what you can do with quite unique names international names, especially, is break them up. So shall what's the first part of her name? So I pictured a Shaolin monk and then her last have her name was your now, of course, a chore on how can I associate that to a Shaolin monk? I pictured a Shaolin monk scrubbing the floor and to this day I can still pick to that image off a Shaolin monk scrubbing the floor and this beautiful building. So I will never for the I'd say for the rest of my life forget how to pronounce her name as Shout Show. With time, you will get faster and quicker at making these associations. We need to understand. Knows you need to practice is in every interaction. That's the only way you're gonna get better. Like, say, caution of using associations because I brain the members best when it's humor quite sexual or that gory and you don't always want to tell the past in the association you've made with them, have a go and see how that works. 12. LANGUAGES - Goals: welcome to the language. Learning off the memory marsh recourse. Now, before we start, you need to understand why so important that we set ago before we even start. So by the end, this lesson you will know the importance off not only how to use memory but the importance of gold setting to learn a new language as they motivated further process. Because that's what learning a language is. It's a process. So you need to win Senate learning a new language known. Improve your memory, but it opens up a new world on a whole new world of opportunities. So let's have a look at the landing points for this lesson. First, we'll look at why to learn a new language already we've discussed, you know, opens up this new opportunity in this new world, which never would have been accessible to you before. Especially if you're looking to travel well. Then look at setting specific, measurable And of course, once we've got those goals, what's of award at the end? This is how we build habits. So to begin with having a specific goal, they're saying that you want to be fluent and say Spanish is too big of a go. It needs to be highly specific because being fluent in the language well, English is my native language. Yep, it's gonna probably take me a lifetime. So when it comes to learning a new language so yourself a specific goal, you want to become conversational with a native, have a conversation for 15 minutes within three months. Super super specific. We've identified its with a native speaker. We've identified that it's within a certain time allocation of also identified. We want to simply be conversational. That alone is a big enough girl because I commitment politics, that commitment, religion and his words that you may know understand next, measurable. How we actually going to see if you've achieved your go, you know, with the speed and course we know. But in the seven days, you should have been able to double your reading speed. However, when it comes to learning a language, you need to be out to measure it. So we're saying to ourselves, you know, free months, 15 minutes. You need to set these parameters in place so you can stick to them. But it's all good saying to yourself that you're going to do this because we all know when we try a new exercise program, a new diet or even try to create a new product, have it like reading every morning. We don't always stick to him, and that's because there's no of award. So at the end, we need some sort of award. And that could be going to that country and Fremont's, which acts great for two reasons. One you've got somebody look forward to because hopefully you wanna go to that country. Number two. Make sure that you're motivated because, you know, for a fact, if you don't become conversational, I'm within three months. Then you're gonna struggle and that reward that book in the flight in the hotel, it's gonna be a waste of your money. So having reward is great. Someone look forward to, and it will make sure that rain or snow you will make sure that you stick to it. So that's all for the setting the goals. But now we're gonna look at the exciting part, the techniques that you're gonna use to acquire your new desired language. I'll see you in the next system 13. LANGUAGES - Brute force learning: welcome to the language learning lesson to off the memory Mastery course. Then this one. It's a monster, of course. So I hope you're saying comfortable because we have a whole lots. Cover this one. We're gonna be looking at brute force landing booth Force learning is what a lot of hackers do to try and get into your camp. They'll try password like study Fast said, If I want to free speed reading far study the user variety off potential combinations of words get into your camp that don't go off now and trying it to instagram account by using a variety of passwords. But what brute force lining is great for is when it comes to learning a new skill, such as learning a new language. Now the first thing is the best way to land. It's to speak the language in the country, but not all of us have the time or the money to be in that country. So here yourself, but Children, I can't spend time in that country. I feel your pain myself included. I won't speak Spanish by struggle being in the country. So what can you do? Whether seven things you can do right now to learn the language using brute force landing. If you know in the country, the 1st 1 change the settings on your laptop on your phone because what you'll start to do is yes. At the beginning. It will be hard because you're download some think and the settings you will know understand in the slightest, but you'll start to see patterns. You start to see that pig hair means paste and copy our means. Copy. If, of course, you learn Spanish and you start to put this into your daily practice because we start to notice is you start to see it often, but it doesn't then scare you. And then what you can start to do is you start formulating what the sentence or paragraphs mean because you're seeing on a daily basis, meaning that you're Mersing, your brain within the language. And this is what brute force landing it's all about. Next. What about efficiency here? Study fast. So why would recommend doing is that you only need to learn 800. The most frequently used words in your new language, now 800 sounds off course. Daunting, but believe it or not, if you can remember 800 off the most frequently used words in the new language. Simple Google Search will show you that you'll be able to understand 70% off the language on a normal daily basis. So it shows you that a mammoth task off speaking fluently in your new language isn't actually that daunting when you realize it's a memory game moving on. So we've already looked at the most use words. What about music? Well, we talked about amassing a brain in a new language, even at speeds where your comprehension suffers, It's really important that you hear the accent, the pronunciation, and you also get hit over mean every time. You kind of understand what the artist has just said moving on from the auditory sense pocus Now do linger. We have no affiliation with them, but doing if you don't know the number one at the time language learning application and they also have a podcast. Now it's a really good balance where they have a story. Andi, you'll have the English speaker, your native language, and then you'll have your desired language chip in throughout the story. So you're never really losing track of where it's going next. TV. Now, this doesn't even feel like practice, because if you have, when your favorite TV series narcos being the obvious if you learning Spanish. But what about friends? Well, popular TV shows now And, of course, how big Netflix is. You're able to change the order tree to your desired language. So, yes, it will be dubbed over, and it won't quite move with the actors lips. Nor will it have their voice. But you will have the auditory sense off the language at the beginning. Have the subtitles in your native language. So you're not losing track. And number two, you're recognizing these patterns written. Now I'm guilty over a lot of things now digital. If you have a chance to take notes, be sure to write your notes in your new language. They may mean nothing surpass Next E. And trust me, you will make a lot of spelling mistakes. But what you start to realize these gaps in your knowledge of all. How do you say no pad and Spanish and so you riot. No pad in English and the rest of sentence Spanish and then you such up and now you know that no pad is as you don't know what no Patties and Spanish. I could say I'm going through the process myself. You know, I need to become a by product of this. I've been learning Spanish, of course, the release of this course for dos semanas. So within two weeks, I've already quite excelled making friends. Now this is the final point. Sounds obvious and it sounds very tricky, but it's not. You probably know someone who speaks your desired language. There's many people that speak many languages, but you just can't look at someone. But, ah yeah, you know, three languages. So I encourage you to let people know that you're learning a new language. It makes you accountable. But not only that. You'll realize who in your network can actually speak your desired language. And what's great is that correct you. So you'll be conversating with, hopefully a native or someone who reads over proficient level who actually become your coach today. You have a how to use the hackers technique to master a new language. Like I said, there was a lot to take in there. You've got a lot of action steps do now changing the settings on your phone, making sure you're listening to the music on poor casting your side language. But most importantly, mercial brain in it in every shape. Way possible. I see you next system. 14. READING - Visual markers: Hey there, I'm welcome to the first lesson on the memory master course around how to take in more information when reading a book. Now this one, we're not gonna waste any time because the best way to understand how to use visual markers is to see a practical example. So by the end of this, you will understand how to use these visual markers and how they will improve your comm pension and speed off retrieval. So as I mentioned the only film we'll be looking at today, it's a practical example. We're gonna get straight into it because what you need to start doing is you need to start to see the words, the average talking speed for person, unless you Tony Robbins, is 150 to 250 words per minute. So it's no surprise that when we look at the average reading speed for students, teachers and corporate professionals that it's around 200 because we're having the words instead of seeing them. So using visual images but more specifically visual markers on the page, you start to see them itself, hearing them improving your reading speed, but more importantly, your comprehension. So let's take a look at how I would tackle passage. Now this is a great quote from Steve Jobs, so we'll quickly go for it so people focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means that all it means. Saying no to the 100 other good ideas that are you have to pick carefully matches, proud of the things we haven't done, things I have done innovation saying no to 1000 things. So how would I actually remember this passage quite simply, picking out the keywords which sharp, italicized Let's start with focus. As soon as I see the word focus, I picture a focal lens for camera. Next is stop. It's the idea that you need start saying no. So I picture stop sign 100 picked $100 bill, which I'm yet to hold Next we have good ideas so easy. One that comes to my mind is a light bulb. Then we have proud while I honestly think off graduation day, which is a proud day for many people. We then have innovation on. The first thing I think about of innovation is Tessler, and finally the okay, You know that things thing no to that many things is Okay, so I think of the emoji now, these visual images of great but what they even more useful for is telling a story. So once I've made these visual markers on my page lit, she pitching the lens on the first line as I have this story off these images on a page. So what I'll do is okay. So I was focusing on the road less or stop sign, and it had $100 bills just pouring all over it. I fall of a good idea. What if I went to university for myself? Tesla car. If it would be OK, that quick story of me driving, focusing, stopping, being distracted by the money. Having a good idea, going to uni Buying a Tesla car and everything's okay means nothing To many people, sports great is you will get faster at making these images. The more you do it in the three vivid, they need to be humorous, because what you do is your work backwards. That piece of information is boring, but if you can attach visual images to it and more specifically, something in a sequential order where you can create story. Your weight retrieval will be greater to start practices when you're reading, because what you'll find is, as I mentioned, you will get faster. It takes a little bit of effort, but a little bit of effort will make a big result in the end, so I'll see you in the next lesson. 15. READING - Linking: Hey there. Now, in this lesson, we're gonna be following on from lesson one. Really looking at that method of linking those visual markers together to create a story in your mind to help you piece together information. So promise is very simple. You're gonna understand this simple technique off linking how creating story allows you to remember large balance off information. So the landing points three simple ones. Number one, What is linking? What is this principle? Well, I'm gonna show you a practical example. And it's what I love about this week is we're looking at the practical examples of using the techniques and, of course, the power of retrieval for comprehension. So the idea off going over what you just read? So what is linking? It's a simple method of linking information with the story, all relevance to one another to recall and sequential order. The really key emphasis is on that sequence because for many of us, when we're taking an information, there's an order in which will have to call it over. It's and the forces and we have to recall a case study like an event that just happened, or whether it's an actual fictional or non fictional event. Well, we want to remember exactly what order things happened him. The Lincoln is a really diverse too, and here's how we'll use it. So I need you to join him. Take a moment to read this passage. Then why this is a test and feel free to pause at any point. Press play once you've read it. Okay, hopefully you've taken the time to take that in. Don't worry, if no, because I want to break it down once again. How I would read this. So when you're reading a passage, it's really important. Remember what it's all about. Zambia. What's the first thing that comes to my member? Here's a Gambia, I think zombies. Okay, something in zombies on the railroads. This is what this whole passage is about. So the history off railroading few tracks have been laid faster, the nose off the tans on by away in Zambia. So what meant women do I get is Tarzan Tansen running fast down the tracks? That's why I kind of paused and hesitated faster. That's our first image, Tars. I'm running down tracks fast at this moment, is moving from the port off Darius Salam to Zambia's Copperbelt. When I hear the word poor, I think of the wine Dar es Salaam salami And of course we already said that Zambia izombie a picture a zombie with a great copper bell on. So what is the link so far? But if we go back, it's the zombie railroads. And on those railroads, we have tires. I'm running fast on the tracks next. OK, we've got a wine port and it's going from Daria salami, salami, and it's moving too. Talas, I'm Time's up. You see how old Lincoln It's governor and it's the copper bell of zombie. The line is being built by Chinese laborers. So for that I let you picture nose off Chinese people with the help of a loan from China. But I picked them now with bags of the yen and the euro. The yen symbol onto the on, running about with these big bags of money, and finally, the entire line is expected be completed about two months ahead of schedule expected. I think of pregnancy and the number two. Once again, it's just a number. It's very hard to remember form of information like that. So I think of twins. So they're expecting twins ahead of their schedule. So a fast review. Okay, let's take it back. So we had Chinese laborers with bags of money. A loan from the bank, the Chinese bank more specifically. And then we had When was it gonna be done by? Is ahead of schedule expected. And there was twins a two months ahead off schedule. So let's go through really quickly. Okay, So what country is being discussed? Zombie. Zambia was the name of the railway because I'm handsome. The railway is moving from the Port Dahlia Salam to who's when The Copperbelt the zombie Zambia is being built by Chinese laborers with big bags of money form the Chinese government and the line is expected to be completed dos two months ahead of schedule. So you see how that kind of fun, banal little game that we just played in terms of transfer member story? But you know what is surprising is we always remember what is important. So if we convict these stories where we can attach new information to pre existing information, those associations are a lot stronger faster, remember? And then we can put this story together. Expect Order off how the events have played out. Have a little girl throughout your days this week Making these visual Marcus a zombie tar zaman and fast on the track salami moving forms an army to a zombie with a couple on. I'm making these stories and at each chapter, close that book on. Just test yourself. Okay, This happened that we'll be looking at the power off review and closing that chapter very shortly, so I'll see you soon. 16. NUMBERS - Major system: it's a new that means a new topic. Now, this one, we're looking at numbers. We're keeping it very simple, concise. There's only two lessons for now, because with this, these two methods are essential. They might take a little bit of extra effort before, during and after to make sure that you can implement this in any given situation. So let's take a look at the major system. So promises You understand the history, science and application of the major system. No, no, I m weak one. We looked at all the memory techniques that we're gonna use. However, we didn't touch upon this only because its relevance is only in numbers. So before we get into it as something you need to do now, of course, yes, you can cheat in this exercise, but you're only cheating yourself. At the end of the day, I want you to remember these numbers. You will be shown a digits off numbers on your screen for a face seconds, OK, and enough of faith seconds. We'll see how much you retreat. Now you can't write it down. Feel free to use any memory technique. You can think off on important the video. Give yourself a seconds and come back to you. Okay. Ready? We'll be starting in. Free To what? Feel free reports. Video. Time yourself A seconds. Okay. Welcome back. Hopefully paused. It didn't spend on the fate. Second, that you haven't cheated were cool. The numbers and sequential order. See how many you can get. Write it down because we're gonna come back to this. I'm gonna show you how Beiber tackle the series of numbers, but how you will in the future. So the learning points for today We'll be looking at the history off the major system, the major system itself and how? Combining visual images and storytelling. Well, of course, it beginning take time. How powerful really is to remembering lawn digits of numbers. So the history Major Lewinsky try and pronounce that name. He did not actually create the major system. In fact, he only developed upon it by a French scholar on the inventor of the numerical memory. Take me. What made you Did he develop this into a modern version that could be used in real world on was developed in the 19 hundreds. So it's been around for quite some time and not a lot has changed. So how does the major system actually work? What It looks that way looks at using continents, associating them to number 0 to 9. To be specific, not using vows. And you'll see why is because we put vows in between to form words, images, The only constants. Andi Also, they all have something association for you to remember them. There's no memory technique care, but what you won't need to do is remember this structure. If you remember this structure, you'll be fine. So this will be the longest and probably the most difficult part off the system. We're gonna help you the best I can. Zero. When you see zero, think off the letter s. It's soft. I'm think like a snake biting its own tell, you know, it goes round and bites itself making that zero shape one. Now there's two options. You can go with the D and T because they have one stroke in the letter to and because got two strokes you started, see patents now free is M because it's gone three strokes full because it ends in our. So the method uses are five Now, when I was looking at this. I was, like, five for what reminds me off the letter L s O with some of these, you're gonna have to come up with it yourself. But for me, five alive. So I think off l life six is J. And if you picture the J if you connect, it looks like the six If you flip it around seven. Interesting. If you put two sevens, you can actually really make a K by modeling it about eight is f. And if you look once again with certain handwriting, a lower case f how it would look around would look similar to an eight and nine is p. This one's quite of year since died. If you'd flip the nine around, it would look like a P. I would recommend that this point is pausing the video. Now this I haven't come up with this major system could be found replicated across all different websites, all different books. It has not changed and it can't change because this is the system people use. So if you know if you're using em for two, it simply doesn't work. Because now your goalposts are different to someone else's So we keep the system How It's always been kind like a martial arts, you know, adapting it civil world application. So how do we use this for numbers? Well, let's take that long digit number. So it started with 22 So what we picture is in none. Because you go n n and you see, we make a word using a vow. But the year, But you need to go five unique picture and then and I picture Mr Bean. Okay, so the idea is this image is comical. It's humorous. And so it won't leave your mind. So when I see 22 I think of none. We then have free is zero to another. Really keeping with this method is that you don't take individual numbers. You watch Chung. Come on. We've talked about Chungking in the past the idea off taking, taking information and breaking it down into smaller sections. Sofia to was quite nice as she stands for M S n. And that's where I found my first of the girlfriend, which is on MSN is also work on my first heartbreak next image we had 48 to 9 my skin. It means nothing to us. But it's how she r f n peak. So I think off a soldier in the Royal Air Force taking a nap, Katie visual images and actually string it all together. So you've got none is on MSN. Speaking to a Royal Air Force mint is taken enough. So specificity is a Sikh for off remembering long digits off numbers you may think, Jordan, you're not so much detail, so much time taken to create those images. However, that is the real secret remembering long digits numbers. So call the numbers again. So the images we had, we had a nun with M S M. And we have a Royal Air Force soldier taking a nap. What were the numbers? I'll give you a moment to pause the video now and just kind of a cool grocery images Break it down. You had two ends, you gonna have em sm and then you had oh, if and P Okay, hope has been enough time. Maybe you pause it, you know, written them down. Let's see how well you did this time. So none 22 m s. M. It is what it says on the tin freezer to. And finally with that four a to nine. So let's for cool the numbers one more time. Hopefully Now you don't even need that much time. Hopefully, you can now be like 22 free, uh, to war Air Force. So we have full Then we have f eight nap too. And of course, P, which is nine. And this was the number that you saw the very beginning. So it's just idea that just take him. I said, I give you face seconds. Maybe Did come up with some sort strategy. But when you see a number, simply chunk it and to free four bits and in associative to the major system sharing a story. So take it slow the beginning. Test yourself with how well you know the major system fast. Do this for the next couple of days. Simply go about when you see the time. Well, okay, what would that be? That would be an end. That would be an hour. Well, 44 and work like that. So once you are really confident that's become semantic. Remember semantic memory that cement something that's just hard core fax, then thought they used Chungking numbers between sets of two tonight using the Chungking method. So you're looking at a savings of numbers, something bigger than two digits, and you started to chuck them. Maybe it's two and two. What? Maybe it's free and four. The great thing with this method is you can practice everywhere, you know, practicing with license plates, passing with people's numbers. Passing on your phone council was seen numbers. With all these techniques you can use on a daily basis, made a little over food, see large results. 17. NUMBERS - Peg system: welcome to lessen to the Peck system. This is our second and last technique that will be looking at two member long digits. So promises By the end of this you'll be asked for ur impact system. Why it's powerful on how quick you can use it so full things will be covering history. Why it's unique, my pick system, any of applications off him to the history of pick system. I came from this young man, Sam Orson, a former four time Australian memory champion. He's also the co founder of the Memory League, which is a fantastic organization where it allows average Joes like myself in you to compete against one another online using the art of memory software where you concerned up to challenges on a monthly weekly basis and we could be invite along and compete around the world. So why is this system so unique? Because you can make your own. The idea of this is very simple. You create a image, a word that rhymes with the number from the very few systems similar to the memory palace, or you can create yourself and allow your creativity to blossom. Where is the major system is very rigorous and structured. You can't really diver off its path. This you can So my pick system. So you've got to remember another system if you want to use either or however this one, that's what I want to just give you techniques or you can decide which one you prefer. This one you create this one. I recommend using the image of where that first comes to mind. So when I see the words there were the word Did you even I think off the word hearer one run to she Free tree four door five gun six kicks seven heaven eight state nine swine. So for yourself, create your own words that I have a rhyme or you can associate to the numbers I'd recommend No using my one, but using your own individual one that makes sense to you. So how would you actually uses over them remembering digits by creating the stories up? Okay, you had a hero. He went on a date with a swine that's holding a gun. Well, you great as a memory palace. So let's say you do have a long digit number and the first number is run, which is one. Well, you put a runner on your first item in your house, which might be your desk. OK, then, in the item is you don't the digits around your room using the memory palace of your combining two techniques there, the second application is a shopping list. So let's say the second item is tomatoes well, as it's the second item Number two issue. So I would picture all these massive, bright red tomatoes just bulging out off all of my shoes. Remember, these images need to be big and vivid on abstract forced to remember them. I'm reading now. There's two ways you can use this which I've used myself. Number one is you can kind of group information to one of the key points. Let's say key point from a chap. So you touched one to someone money. So it's reason may running away from breaks there in 2007 team with labour chasing her. So unless you're reading a news article, they need to keep up with what's going on when Brexit started, and of that labor and now you know, putting pressure on her. So this, of course, has very bits of information to, but this the first piece of information. Remember some picture entries made running away from Brexit? Dated back in 2017 with Labour Party chasing after now. For many of you, that might be too much information, so you may decide to break it down and use the second technique where you touched key points in the chapter to your entire back system. So the idea is, you got to Visa May money away. Okay, She's just funny. You think Brexit inside a shoe, which was made in 2017. You see now how the second technique takes a little bit more time, but it ensures you don't miss out on the key details. And then the five point Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, stuck in a tree because I'm afraid is tree. That's how you can break it down. You've got two options there. Peck system. Like I say, it's creative, something you could make your own. And I uncovered you to experiment with both the major system on the peg system to decipher which one you prefer. I'll see you next week 18. SCRIPTS - Record : welcome to the final week off the memory mastery course. Now we're gonna be looking at how to remember your script, and the first lesson will be looking at is record recording your script and how this is powerful. And while recording your script could be an incredible way on, Best away, remember three points. Another short, very concise but powerful lesson today. So everything is allows you to practice anywhere when you record your script of your own voice when you're walking a dog driving or in the shower because that's where you get best ideas. Remember that diffused, focused modes of thinking. Defused mode of thinking is done when you put that low level destruction, such as going for a walk, driving, taking a shower, what's great about having your voice back and you get the immediate feedback. And this is why I love filming myself on platforms like Instagram because was great. I get to pick out small mannerisms, which I don't like. Maybe it's something in my turn ality. Maybe it's something in my eye contact. I am always looking around when I can remember what to say. Maybe it's even with my hands above, according your voice specially for someone who is an actor or public speaker can really assess your pauses. Your turn, the speed off of which you're speaking up and you can insult. Make those connections on the next time out that's in black size that you can do. Festival record your voice. Record your script now. Recommend Innis and Chunks not to record the whole script itself. Then why would recommend is pause at violin points? So what you then have to do is finish the sentence and then play the recording to see if you were to correct such a simple exercise. But it's similar to when you're reading a book, you know, closing that chapter. Then, of course, self testing yourself to see how much you remember then going back. Oh yeah, I got that. Got that? Got that did exact. Same with your script, the court, your voice, press play. Pause at any given point. Not when you know what's coming Next. Finish the sentence and then continue playing it and seeing if you go to correct. It's such a simple exercise, but something that could be done very effectively if used. Wherever you go, I'll see you in the next lesson 19. SCRIPTS - Reframe: in lesson to. We're gonna see how using such a novelty technique being used the higher, crucial situations. Something so silly but something so powerful. So in this one will be looking at two things. Novelty and how it acts as a hope for you to remember more of your script. Now remember, set an animal in a previous lesson. You remember that it was the purple cow. Why? Because it's abstract because it was out of the ordinary. And we had this visual image here, which, of course, with my first ship skills was not the best. But nonetheless, you remember the animal, and you can probably remember some of the things from that lesson because of this animal is the same with reframing. So when you're practicing your script, tried to in the following try doing it in a different accent. You know, have fun with this. You'll probably feel most comfortable doing this by yourself, but this can still be powerful, so try to bring in a different accent. Why? Because you will laugh when you're trying to. In an American accent, you can't quite pronounce, maybe cup of tea, which is quite British thing in an American accent leaving on before baseball. Try doing it at different pictures. So what picture That's again Visual Images Association. Try using different pitchers, maybe parts your scripture really low at times. You're really high, and you find that maybe there's a line that really catches you off guard or sounds funny, and this will act as a hook, which will come to in just a moment. And finally, what you can do is you can even sing your script. Maybe sing it when your favorite songs in your instrumentals great thing again is when you step up what you mess up or something happens, they'll be this little mental hook as we talked about before. The more hooks you have, the better, because when you need high pressure situations, the prefrontal cortex, which we were going to too much science is the part of brain, which is kind of the canvas for our force, and our feelings on our cognitive thinking switches off its overload. So what happens is, you know, when we miss the train we then normally active nationally, you know, we might shout at the person next to us because they're too close to us. We may run down the stairs and pushed past people because in this moment, this high pressure situation, we don't think rationally because our prefrontal cortex is overwhelmed. This happens a lot. This is what's called, you know, stage fright when you're on stage and you just draw blank. But yet you've probably done this player. You've given this talk 10 50 70 100 times before. Every reason the stress which causes so many physiological responses in the body, makes you think out of the ordinary. So this is where having a good memory can act as a support on the juice stress because you know what's coming. You have thes many hooks. If you decide to go off path and, you know, engage with the audience that you come back to your road map, take care your memory palace. So, to conclude this, what animal do you remember hopefully said purple cow, not just cow, and hopefully now you're gonna be frame your script to have fun with it and to make sure human more than in his high pressure situations. I'll see you in the next lesson. 20. MARTIAL ARTS - Peg system: It's the final week. It's the final chapter. Martial arts. How I use my memory techniques to learn boxing, kick boxing, karate am presented jitsu in half the time one of them was using the pick system. If you were called a peck system, we're gonna show you how this is so powerful specifically for high pressure situations. Seems to be a theme in this last week with giving a talk of martial arts, both of which cause a lot of stress for people. So then in points will be covering. Now, of course, it's gonna be a possible nearly impossible, anyway to cover all the martial arts and how the memory techniques can be applied to all of them. So instead, I chose to free kind of most diverse ones, which kind of cover nearly all of them, regardless off what discipline you dio. So let's have a look. First of all, what high pressure situations actually are. And as I've mentioned before, the prefrontal cortex is the most involved part of the brain commonly referred to as the mental sketch pad. However, when induced with high pressure situations, that region its most sensitive to stress causing detrimental effects So we need to first of all, quickly review our peck systems. Now, of course, I can leave you mind. I can't quite hear. We'll see your one. So it suggests. Find the paper from last week. Find your pecs system about remembering numbers. I'm a viewer. More, more time. A quick look at mine. Just in case you did decide to stay with mine for this week. Okay, so how would we used Ipek system? Not just for karate, but for learning. Cata, there's various forms that you have to know Martial arts. So the 1st 1 we would do is hey in showdown, I guess. How would I remember that the first Cata is Hey, and showdown? Well, once against substitute words, It all comes into one another now. And you're seeing why Discourses structured how it is. Hey, in showdown sounds like show for damn! So the first cattle is a show. I remember the first number off my pick system one is one. So I picture myself running or down. If I really want to go that step further, I picked it down running towards so showdown. So I remember that the first cattle that I have to perform is hand showdown Dan running to a show how to remember this for the 2nd 1 And once again this pattern could be followed. You know, karate is a Japanese martial arts along with many of the others. Taking substitute words is really gonna be key. We've got hey in Needham So once get up it to me dans need potentially on a hospital bed But number two is shoe So how do we remember the too? Well, maybe Dan has got one shoe arm because he's broken his knee in case in ni dan Hey and me down the second cattle. That's how we would use the peck system for member forms such a scatter and commodity. But what about techniques specifically presented Gypsy something which I love. So if you're not well versed busy insurgency allow me to give you a quick crash course on Americana, which is a arm submission. The idea is, you pin your opponent rest of the ground, you grab the wrist, you lift it and you slide it down until they step out. Now there's four things, and of course I've simplified it. There's a few more, but there's the four steps. You need to do so when actually bowling with an opponent. How would you remember how to apply them in our car? In this high pressure situation? Very simple. We bring in our pick system, so run on a pin. So you're running and you stepping up in. That's number one. She number two grabs your wrist or a shoe grabs your wrist. Once going quite abstract image, a tree with a lift said the first step is now you're going up this tree in a lift, and that's where you know, number tree is free. You lifting it up but finishes a mission. You need to slide it down sometime before his door. So it's a door with slides down. Okay, that's just one way we're gonna have a look at another way. Used Peck system using combos specifically in boxing and also can be applied to kick boxing and many other disciplines. So how to form a combo? This is just one of combos I love doing, which is left jab left hook, right cross and an exit exit, as in, you know, avoid doctor. Remember, something's coming back at you. You can use this for whatever combos I like to use combos of four whether that's an exit or follow up. So let's have a look. Number one run left with a job. My case. I'm running left and I'm jumping to I left. Shoe is on a hook. Okay, so my shoe, my left one specifically is on a hook. So asked the left hook on the right tree. It has across my picture a tree on the right and it has across inner you X marks the spot. That's that right Cross over. But number four I can number four. It's door. But you know, how do you remember exit door? You need to exit. Need to invade is the number four is exit Very simple. You have to be creative and it takes a little time. As I've said from this course, a little bit of effort leads to big results. So there you have it. This is probably a video which I need to stand up for But I hope you've seen how the peck system can be applied to cater's, you know, learning forms off whatever you learn. Two techniques, such as performing a submission on number free combinations and how they can be used to remember the sequence off combinations. I'll see you in the next lesson. 21. MARTIAL ARTS - Repetition: Now it's time to look at repetition and how repetition could be used as an effective tool to remembering Cata Tech Any combination. Now, something different have got four things will be covering. We look at that intensity visualization, creating a small habit. My shadow Boxing is extremely powerful for you to learn anything. Marshals So intensity, the whole saying, no pain, no gain just isn't true, you know, if your body doesn't need to feel beaten up after every session. In fact, that isn't always a sign that you've actually learned something. So this is key to go to get away from that discourse that if you're not feeling pain that you're not progressing, it just simply isn't true on one. Sure, Okay, with that, you can start to create small habits because I would drive a train 300 times of any year, then have 100 hard sessions. You see where I'm coming from. So it's Chris Moore habit. You know, we find five minutes a day, 10 minutes a day to brush our teeth so you can find that same time to practice a cata a combination, or to learn something new online. What many fighters do they use visualization? When we talk about not feeling beaten out? Well, you can replicate a fight without even moving a muscle on. Many fighters do this because you don't only need control of your body but the state of your mind. They need to have a positive self image of themselves. Because if they see themselves in a negative view in a negative light, that actions will reflect that. Which brings us to shadow boxing, the key for visualization. There's so many benefits. And, you know, we could sit here, but I'm gonna let you go on Google, figure that all out, But I'm gonna give you the four main benefits I found. Number one allows you to face multiple and slash or vital opponents. What I mean by this is you can replicate a tsunami aware you're facing over multiple Attackers, different people with different styles. And you can almost place out in your mind of how you would approach it the next one. Preserve your body we talked about. You don't need to be beaten up after every session. Shadowboxing does just that. There's a little toll on the body. It also allows you to find your technique because controlled environment usually by yourself, we could take the time to focus on your smaller movements. And there's motor patterns and what I love my spots. It you can practice near enough anyway, as long as you've got enough room to extend an arm or to extend the kick, even leave what little space. You can still practice moving in that small space, which you may have to do in self defense or in a competition. But what I do want to leave you on on. What I want you to remember is, you know, yes, we can look for all the high tech gear like the face masks and the high tech gym equipment . Ultimately delete martial artists, the best self defense people. They do the common things uncommonly well. To feed that one more time. They do the common things uncommonly well, you know, it comes back to what Bruce Lee says. You know, I don't feel the man that practices ah 1000 kicks. I packed it. I fear the man practices one kick 1000 times the idea that we work hard on the foundations because it in the day the foundations is what everything's built on. Hopefully you ever think about taking a marsh wild, so you can only do one or you wanna get back involved. And you're now learning how quick you can learn it without having to pay the fees of attending night classes with the Internet. Now we can learn their enough anything. Hopefully your lance I mean, here today. I see in the next lesson.
