How to Memorize Anything

How to Memorize Anything


A couple weeks ago I began a summer memorizing project (I know, it’s not summer yet).

When I decided to memorize, I started thinking about a system I could come up with to help me memorize.

Here’s the system:

Start by dividing whatever you’re memorizing into chunks of 30-60 words, (if it’s a Bible passage, simply use each verse as your divider).

  • Read the section 20 times
  • Try reciting it 10 times, you can look for reference at this point, just try not to read too much.
  • When you can completely recite (no looking) five times in a row without mistake, you’ll know for sure you have it memorized.
  • Now, gather all the sections that you’ve memorized so far and recite them all together.

That’s It!  I have found this system to be super effective.

Feel free to change, add, or remove, to better suite you.

Why not give it a try, and tell me how it works for you?

Also, I’d love to hear what system you use when memorizing, comment and share your thoughts!
