While by age 30 most feel they should have their career dialed in, it is never too late to reset

While by age 30 most feel they should have their career dialed in, it is never too late to reset. The individuals that I have seen with the biggest regrets during this decade are those that stay in something that they know is not right. I am about to turn 41 and would tell my 30-year-old self that you do not have to conform your life to an ideal that you do not believe in. Live your life, don’t let it live you. Don’t be afraid of tearing it all down if you have to, you have the power to build it all back up again.

MORE REGRETS! 30 Ways in 30 Days - Story Behind the Book.

I am the founder and Executive Director of The Mnemonics Institute, the only educational institution dedicated solely to the advancement of memory training utilizing mnemonics. Thank you for stopping by. A mnemonic, or mnemonic device, is a strategy for improving your memory. The idea behind mnemonic devices is simple. To associate what is unfamiliar to what is already known. To make the incomprehensible understandable. Generations of students have learned the Great Lakes by recalling HOMES, an acronym for Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior. A person s abilities to perform such physical feats as moving boulders, removing trees, or lifting heavy objects are quite limited. Our human powers increased tremendously by the invention of tools. This includes levers, bulldozers, cranes, cars, saws, etc. Like our physical powers, our inherent mental powers are also quite limited. The use of an appropriate conceptual mnemonic is the mind s most powerful tool. Like a good hammer, for example, a mnemonic can help us perform mental tasks that otherwise would be difficult, or even impossible to perform. However, just as a hammer may be appropriate for some tasks but not others (pounding nails versus tightening a bolt), a particular mnemonic strategy may or may not be appropriate depending upon the nature of the memory problem. The exploration and eventual selection of strategies must therefore be preceded by a careful identification and analysis of the particular memory problem to be solved. The appropriateness of the strategies must be evaluated by actively applying them and analyzing their effects. You never need to spend more than 15 minutes a day on this book. This book is unique in that it combines many techniques in a step by step program that links the interrelationships of mnemonic approaches, and makes them easily assailable. It has been one of my principle goals in writing this book to make all available strategies available in one volume. I have defined and refined the mechanics of memorization and my book is the only encyclopedia of mnemonic techniques available. Most memory books list several methods, but I list every mnemonic tool ever utilized. Mnemonics are like iron swords - they must first be forged with fire in your mind, and then honed sharp with practice. My book is worth its weight in solid gold. My books are concerned with Adult Learning - the mastery of meaningful material in school, university, or on the job. The process of applying mnemonics to improve your memory consists of three steps: Get to know the technique. Know when to apply the strategy. Practice using them. Often. The 30 Ways 1.

First, something unrelated to the book's content: I can't help but assume a lot of the reviews here are from the author's friends. One person refers to him as 'Curt' (his name is Curtis) -- a rather familiar moniker to use for a stranger. Another review is an original paragraph, followed by material pasted from book's introduction with no such indication. I mention this because the positive reviews influenced my unfortunate decision to buy the book.

As for the book's content, the table of contents gives the impression that readers will be concisely introduced to the techniques listed. Instead, one doesn't learn new techniques in every chapter. One gets to read the author's opinions backed by little if any data. He even has a chapter on ESP. Included is talk about how humans have a latent capability for clairvoyance, pre-cognition, and telepathy (among other things). This would be fine if there were repeatable scientific studies to support the existence of any of the fields studied by parapsychologists like J.B. Rhine. Unfortunately for Holliman, Rhine's results have never been reproduced and he even discovered his own assistant falsifying data to support their desired conclusions. Rhine appears to have been an honest, though deluded man.

This book would have been much stronger had it been edited for grammar (e.g. "The rat whom ate the malt"), style (e.g. the author seems to think his having several unrelated degrees means anything for the subject; pedagogically unsound, inconsistent repetition of material), and content (e.g. stick to mnemonics, and avoid trying to write about paranormal activities; follow through with the implicit promise made to the reader).

There are some tidbits in the book worth reading, but there's nothing here that isn't found in more reliable volumes on memory.

I understand that the author drew on what he had gleaned from other books on the subject however I did not and would not expect him to keep repeating the same statements ( actually pretty much full pages) over and over again throughout the book. In one case he repeated the same info at least three times. And it wasn't important. In my opinion it was just for filler.

I was disappointed. I felt I had wasted my money on this book purchase. The book was over-hyped
DEAD-SHOT
This should be taught in every school and learning center. I have purchased many copies of this book as those who borrow are so impressed I just let them keep it and I purchase a new one. Its not like a novel but a book of books written in easy to understand language and easy application now matter what level you are. A must have...

The techniques are good, the filler and redundant wording obscures the various golden nuggets of information at times. Also, the book drifts off into areas I'd consider just a little too new age-ish to be useful for me.

The Mnemonics Book assisted me in getting through Nursing School with a straight "A" grade point average. A mnemonic, or mnemonic device, is a strategy for improving your memory.

A person's abilities to perform such physical feats as moving boulders, removing trees, or lifting heavy objects are quite limited. Our human powers increased tremendously by the invention of tools. This includes levers, bulldozers, cranes, cars, saws, etc. Like our physical powers, our inherent mental powers are also quite limited. They become invincible with the use of mnemonics. The use of an appropriate conceptual mnemonic is the mind's most powerful tool. Like a good hammer, for example, a mnemonic can help us perform mental tasks that otherwise would be difficult, or even impossible to perform.

However, just as a hammer may be appropriate for some tasks but not others (pounding nails versus tightening a bolt), a particular mnemonic strategy may or may not appropriate depending upon the nature of the memory problem. The exploration and eventual selection of strategies must therefore be preceded by a careful identification and analysis of particular memory problem to be solved. The appropriateness of the strategies must be evaluated by actively applying them and analyzing their effects.

You never need to spend more than 15 minutes a day on this book. Mnemonics, after all, is hard work. This book is unique in that it combines many techniques in a step by step program that links the interrelationships of mnemonic approaches, and makes them easily assailable. It has been my intent to take the hard work out of memorization and learning new factual data. It has been one of my principle goals in writing this book to make many different strategies available in one volume.
Mnemonics are bullet proof.

The process of applying mnemonics to improve your memory doesn't need to be complicated. It consists of three steps:
Get to know the technique- How to apply them
Determine which situations it can be used in- When to apply them
Practice using them- Often
