Okay, so this isn’t an instant way to become the memory genius that blows everybody away, but it is a great start!

Whether or not you decide to start in on your own memory palace, I think it’s worth taking the time to appreciate how incredible it is that our mind is capable learning how to memorize anything!

There is limitless possibility waiting to be tapped in the space between our ears. Each of us walks around with one of the most complex pieces of evolutionary hardware all the time! If ever we forget how amazing this world can be we need to look no further than our own brains.

So, go out, learn something new, and while you’re at it try storing it in your memory palace just for fun!

Stay beautiful & keep laughing!
