#6 – Repeat
As annoying as it may have been, there is a reason teachers make students write spelling words ten times – repetition improves memory. As soon as you learn something new or are told something that needs to be remembered, repeat it immediately. Write it down in multiple places or repeat it aloud. For example, to remember someone’s name say “Nice to meet you, [name]” or to remember an appointment, write it down on a piece of paper and on the calendar, whether that’s on your phone or wall.
