Here is a very simple technique that I discovered from Andi Bell's Memory Pack that I have reviewed this month. How many times have you said to yourself "I must remember to do......" and then when it came time for you to do it, you forgot you had to or perhaps you even knew you had to do something but could not remember what it was?
Now another question for you. If you walked into your kitchen and somebody moved the fridge to the other side of the room, do you think you would notice? Perhaps on a smaller scale, if you walked into your bedroom and someone had moved some of your things, do you think you would spot that they had been moved? The answer is probably yes and this is not because we have brilliant memories for the things around us, it is because we are creatures of habit and security and we like things to stay the same so if something has moved out of its normal place we spot it immediately.
So what is my point? Well the next time you have to put the cat out before you go out, a job that may normally done by someone else, why not put a tin of cat food on the doormat so you can't help but trip over it. When you see the cat food you'll remember to put the cat out.
Now that's an obvious example, but the connection need not be so blatant. It could be something as subtle as moving an ornament 3 inches, or moving a mat so that it no longer lines up with the table. The key thing is that when you do this, you say to yourself "this will remind me to do.....". Now when you next see this "disturbance" in your normal environment you'll know you have to do something, and the fact that you created the disturbance in the first place as you thought about what you had to do, will mean you will remember it.
It really is as simple as that. Try it, it will work if you use it.
