Your memory is inherently powerful.

If you had to guess, how many memories do you think you recall each day? Most people answer somewhere between 100 and 10,000. But in reality, we access several billion memories every single day.

Our brains hum along recalling memories all the time, and they operate so efficiently that we don’t even take notice. Even something as simple as a conversation activates a whole range of memories, and places them in the appropriate context.

For example, when Grandma asks little Judy “How’s Jake?”, Judy’s brain has to do a lot more than just interpret Grandma’s language; it also has to run through all the “Jake” memories in her brain. Judy has both a dog and a toy named “Jake,” but her memory recalls that grandma always asks about the dog. Judy answers “Slobbery, but good.”

Astoundingly, research suggests that our memory may be close to perfect.

Consider, for example, that many people have vivid dreams of friends and lovers they haven’t seen for decades. Somewhere in their mind, the brain has stored a perfect, unchanging image of this person, which can be recalled with the right trigger.

We’ve all had the experience of suddenly recalling people or events from the past. A single smell, sight or sound can bring about memories we thought we had forgotten. For example, the smell of freshly baked cookies might instantly conjure up memories of grandma’s house from when you were a kid.

In fact, the famed psychologist and neurophysiologist Professor Mark Rosenzweig has stated that even if we exposed a human brain to ten new pieces of information every second of our lifetime, it still wouldn’t even be half full.

If there is enough “space” in our brain to store all the memories we collect through the years, then the key to perfect memory is the self-management of this remarkable storage. The following blinks will examine memory techniques, called mnemonics, which can help you do this.
