How To Remember Someones Name

 

I-Forgot-to-Remember

Now this is good to know because I am so bad at this. I so like to remember peoples names that I have met and embarrassed when I don’t.

Here is a few handy hints.

When you meet someone new at a party mostly their name just slips from your mind.

There is usually no harm in asking them to repeat it and these tips will ensure you won’t need to.

 

1. When you first hear their name, repeat it. Use it in a question or check you’ve got it right. saying it out loud early on will help you commit it to memory.

 

2. Experts say a good trick is to make a verbal or visual association. Picture the persons name written on their forehead, or use a rhyme (Big-shot Scott) or alliteration (slurring Scott) to make it memorable.

 

3. The key factor is your attitude. The main reason we forget a name is because we’re distracted, or not actually very interested in learning it. So if you make a conscious decision to try and remember someone’s name, chances are you will.

4. Another way of finding out someones name,(Use this method many times)  that you have forgotten  is always say to your friends  that if you don’t introduce them to someone  its because you cannot remember their name. 

I tell my friends to say ” My name is ……….. you need to excuse my friends manners and yours is?”

Thats a win win as you get to find out their name without having to embarrassingly ask them.  You should know and your friend will not get annoyed with you thinking they are not important enough to be introduced to that person.

Interesting subject: Important words in Blogging

According to copyblogger.com it is only two words.

I found this article very interesting and of course I wanted to share this with you because it may be a reason why your readers are not finding your articles interesting or not coming back to your website because is not focused at them.

I have always found that most people like to talk about themselves. It’s a great ‘ice breaker’ if you are faced with a silent moment with a newly introduced person.
I guess from reading the article from copyblogger that blogging is no different. Readers like to read articles that could benefit them.

The Two Most Important Words in Blogging
by Brian Clark

Imagine… by the end of this post, you will be a more effective blogger, all because you learned two very important words, and the specific reasons why those words are so crucial.

Actually, both words can be found in the preceding sentence, along with hints related to their importance.

Did you catch them?

If not, keep reading, because all will be revealed.

The Most Important Word is “You”

Did you find the opening sentence compelling? If so, why?

Or the better question is, who was the first sentence focused on?

Well, let’s consider this. Have the words “me” or “I” appeared in this post before now?

It’s certainly ironic that a medium often used as a self-absorbed journaling platform would now need to be overwhelmingly focused on the reader in order to be effective. But if you’re blogging for marketing or public relations purposes, your every post should be purposefully aimed at the needs and wants of others.

You only benefit when readers benefit first.

When it comes to writing engaging content, “you” is the most powerful word in the English language, because people are ultimately interested in fulfilling their own needs. It may sound harsh, but the fact is your readers won’t start to actually care about you at all until you’ve repeatedly offered them exceptional value with your blog.

But once they do start to care about you, look out… because wonderful things can start happening. Things like viral buzz and customer evangelism.

The same substantive content will be more effective with the focus shifted toward the reader. One of the easiest ways to do that is to maximize the use of “you”, while minimizing or eliminating “I” and “me”.

Every time you finish writing a blog post, check the focus. How many times does you and its derivations appear? What about I and me?

Got the count? Good. Now, adjust accordingly.

Try it, and you’ll be amazed at the results.

The Other Word is “Because”

One of the most important characteristics of compelling, persuasive content is specificity. The more specific you are, the more credible your points, arguments or sales pitch.

There are many ways to be specific in your writing. One of the best is simply giving a reason why. And the most effective transition word when giving a “reason why” is because.

The 10 Most Important Things In Life I Learned From Talking to Old People

Article Source mademan.com. I thought it was pretty cool and worth sharing.

I’m a relatively young man. I don’t consider myself wise but I do pay attention more than most people my age. Obviously none of you online know me, but I am what you call mouthy. I love to tell stories, jokes, and in general my life is an open book. I love to have fun and tell those around me exactly what I’m thinking. Believe it or not when I am not talking I am doing something even more important, listening. I truly enjoy a good conversation and especially with those older. I give speeches (mostly on plants) and tomorrow is for a group of seniors 80 and older. Everyday I look at older people and think, what have they done right and what did they do wrong? Here is the list of what I have learned from people 70 and older in relation to finance. I have gathered it all from talking to seniors about what they did right and what they wish they had done.

1. Be patient
Money must be saved over a long period of time. Don’t take high risks for quick returns. Investing is a marathon not a sprint.

2. Take the risks while you are young.
It is ok to take calculated high risks occasionally, but do them when you have time to make it up.

3. Don’t gamble
Gambling is for the desperate and the poor. If you must, do small amounts and view it as
pure entertainment. You will never make money in the long run gambling.

4. Stay healthy.
Good health keeps your mind sharp, your doctor bills low, you lifespan long, and lets you work more to make more money. Healthy people make more money

5. Laugh and Smile
See above. Happy people make more money.

6. Buy and car a keep it for many years or if you need a new one buy one a few years old. A car is one of the biggest waste of money in our lives. People spend too much on new one. Should be buying newer used ones

7. Everything in moderation.
I learned this from an older customer that used this as his mantra. He said he did everything in moderation from drinking to working. He said it was the key to life

8. Keep the fights clean and the sex dirty
The key to a happy marriage. A good marriage will help you save money or cost you a fortune if it goes bad. People stayed together longer in years past. They were a savings team.

9. Don’t spend your money on worthless things.
Don’t buy anything at the checkout counter, don’t buy collectibles, don’t buy all the worthless junk sold around you at the box stores.

10. Move
Stay active. The more you see the more you learn. The more learn the more ideas you have. The more ideas you have, the more chance you come up with something that will earn or save you money. These are all my opinions as gathered by my ears. Some people may agree some may not but it’s how I live my life.

Enjoy
