1. Memory > 6. Use the Dominic System

Use the Dominic System

The Dominic System, invented by World Memory Champion Dominic O’Brien, is an easier alternative to the Major System of mnemonics found in most memory books.

Dominic O’Brien, World Memory Champion, can memorize the order of a full deck of playing cards in less than a minute. To help him achieve amazing memory feats like this, he created the Dominic System of mnemonics. Some people who find the Major System [Hack #5] espoused by most memory experts to be too dry and restrictive find they can stick with the Dominic System.

In Action

The Dominic System uses an easy-to-remember number-to-letter conversion and the initials of memorable people, as well as journeys that are like memory palaces [Hack #3]. As many mnemonic systems do, the Dominic System requires some bootstrapping for you to reach its full potential.
