StoryShots Summary and Analysis of Unlimited Memory: How to Use Advanced Learning Strategies to Learn Faster, Remember More and Be More Productive by Kevin Horsely

Kevin Horsley’s Perspective

Kevin Horsley is a memory expert. He is one of only a few people in the world to hold the title of International Grandmaster of Memory. Additionally, Kevin is a World Memory Championship medalist. Finally, he is a two-time world record holder for The Everest memory test. Not to mention, he can recall the number Pi to over 10,000 decimal places.

“If you keep on doing what you have always done, you are going to get what you have always gotten. You need to do different to get different. Thus, a word of warning: mastering your memory is going to require a different kind of thinking.” - Kevin Horsley

StoryShot #1: The Benefits of Having an Excellent Memory

A great memory gives you a distinct advantage by helping you:

  1. Store and access more information quickly.
  2. Create mental associations.
  3. Build upon existing knowledge.
  4. Grasp opportunities.
  5. Increase your overall intelligence.

StoryShot #2: How to Improve Your Concentration

“We are training our brains to have an attention deficit. A lot of people simply cannot focus for an extended period of time anymore. I have heard that the average person looks at their mobile phone about 50 times a day. We are reading emails, the news, Facebook, and Twitter, etc., during what should be family and relationship time.” - Kevin Horsley

Kevin Horsley identifies concentration as fundamental to remembering anything. Without concentration, all other memory tips are pointless. Hence, he describes two ways to increase your concentration levels:

  1. Rid yourself from conflict: Conflict can distract you from the task you want to engage in. Examples of distractions are social media websites, games, or messages. However, it is not just distractions that impact your concentration. Multitasking itself hugely impacts your ability to concentrate. Kevin highlights that neuroscience research has found that multitasking slows efficiency by 50%.
  2. Give yourself a purpose: If you have a purpose, your mind is less likely to wander. Kevin suggests that you adhere to the "PIC rule.” P stands for purpose. Purpose gives you a reason for learning. I stands for interested. Ask yourself questions so you can become interested. And finally C stands for Curious. Be curious about what you’ve chosen to learn.

“You can remember mountains of information when you are interested in the subject. It almost feels automatic and your concentration is at a peak. Your deficits of attention are mostly interest deficits. Your mind never wanders away; it only moves towards more interesting and outstanding things.” - Kevin Horsley
