1. Memory > 4. Stash Things in Nooks and Crannies

Stash Things in Nooks and Crannies

Systematically place information in the corners and walls of rooms, and expand the capacity of your memory journeys up to tenfold.

“Make Lots of Little Journeys” [Hack #3] explains how to remember information by associating it with places along the way in an imaginary journey. (If you haven’t read that hack, please read it now.) But each place on a memory journey contains other places: rooms typically have four walls, four corners, a floor, and a ceiling, for a total of 10 sublocations. In other words, if you have already memorized a journey through a building, you can now make your memory journey hold 10 times as many pieces of information.1
