5 Ways To Improve Concentration And Memory

We've already seen how important concentration is for achievement. It does require discipline and hand in hand with discipline goes practice. Practice, in the sense that you become used to starting work at a set time in the morning and finishing... when you finish!

Personally, I find it a good idea to prepare for the next day, so that I'm not dithering around, wondering whether I'll do this first or that. I've made up a schedule and I do my best to stick to it.

So what are five ways to improve concentration and memory? Let's list them.

1. Look To Your Comfort.

If you sit down to start work and suddenly realize you're desperate to go to the toilet, concentration won't stand much of a chance! So make sure you've 'been,' that you have a mug of coffee close by, that you're not hungry... in short, that you'll be unable to find any further excuse to leave your desk.

2. Clear The Routine Work.

Go through your E-mails, making notes of the more important ones you'll deal with later. If you have to 'tweet,' or look on Facebook, do so, but don't spend half the morning at it. Only go on these sites for business. Alternatively, schedule half an hour first thing every morning to surf these sites and any other site that interests you, so that you have a bit of enjoyment before you start work.

3. Move Into Concentration Mode!

You've had your fun, now it's time to work. You know, or should know, what you have to do. So, focus on it. Here's a little exercise that may help.

Think of someone you really admire. An athlete, perhaps, or a great musician or artist. Close your eyes and imagine for a few seconds that you're them. Try to immerse yourself in their level of intense concentration, how they must feel just before the conductor's baton comes down or the starting gun goes off. Slide your mind off them, open your eyes and you should be in good focus to begin your own work.

4. Tricks Of Recall.

The method of remembering through association helps a great deal. For instance. I'm sure you've heard of Socrates, who taught... Plato, who taught... Aristotle. Well, just imagine these giants of thought being pampered at a luxurious S P A... and there you have it! This method is known as 'mnemonics.' (The first 'm' is silent, as in 'elbow!!').

5. State For Ultimate Concentration.

When you're trying to remember something, it helps if you're in a similar state of mind when you were actually learning it. It's known as 'state-bound recall.' When trying to remember something, take a few seconds to recall how you felt and your physical surroundings when you actually learned the information.
