Curriculum

Section 1: Beginning
02:42

Your Memory Training Instructor, Tom Weber, explains what you will need to get yourself ready for the Memory Training Workshop. You will want to print your workbook, found in the PDF link on the side.and prepare to have fun.

06:11

You answer one of the most valuable questions: “What do you want to gain from this class?” Knowing your own WHY is essential before you begin learning any new skill.

07:52

Teachability is the measurement of your ability to learn and apply any new skill. Learning the equation will allow you to increase your overall teachability in life and for your workshop.

03:39

The Ground Rules are easy to follow and are designed to maximize your learning and enjoyment of the workshop. Watching this video gets you ready to launch into the actual training.

07:44

Before you can begin learning actual memory techniques we must establish your Baseline. Finding your memory’s Baseline allows you to track your actual progress throughout the workshop. It also gives you experiential information about how your brain “likes” to operate.

06:15

Figuring out how many correct answers you got is a key indicator of where you are starting from and this is not a Pass/Fail score. Whatever your score is...you WIN because you are here and it is going to improve.

08:02

At this point in the workshop we are explaining what your score actually tells us. You will learn about the Rule of Seven, how your short-term memory really works, primacy/recency, and basic study tips that help you save time.

04:10

You are now beginning to understand your own potential and how powerful your memory can be, if only you knew how to train it. In this video you will experience how your Baseline score doesn’t limit you or predict what you are capable of accomplishing. After watching this, you will be fully ready to begin learning some actual memory techniques.

Section 2: Memory Training Exercises
10:08

Where should we start teaching? At the beginning, of course! In this video you will begin to learn how Basic Association works. Basic Association is the most primitive memory technique and gets us mentally prepared to learn even more advanced techniques coming up.

10:12

In this video we learn the second half of the Unicorn List and continue learning the Do’s and Don’ts of Basic Association. We also explore what happens when there isn’t a natural “automatic” association that can be used.

03:57

One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned in using memory techniques is just like the old carpenter saying “Measure twice, and cut once.” Learning how to do a Mental Pre-Test is essential in getting high scores throughout the remainder of this workshop and in using your techniques in the real world. You also get to Test out your Basic Association technique. Good luck!

07:51

Stress affects your memory more than any other factor in your life and in this video Tom explains how stress may have affected your test score. You also get to see the answers to the test and determine your new score. Congrats! You are improving! (even if you don’t feel like it yet)

08:56

Tom takes Basic Association to the next level and you experience just how quickly your brain can start absorbing information. This technique is quirky, funny, and effective and that becomes obvious with this exercise.

05:34

Now let’s see how well the technique worked for you. Tom talks through the technique and explains where you might use this technique in the Real World IF you choose to apply it. Chain of Visualization is not for everyone but we are still learning.

05:49

At this point in the workshop there is normally one overriding question in most people’s minds, “Why?”. In this video, Tom addresses this question with a great analogy from the Karate Kid, that shows us that everything is happening for a good reason.

Section 3: The Mental File Folder System
08:54

You are now ready for the Ultimate Memory Technique, the Mental File Folder System. This is the system that we will use throughout the rest of the workshop. Tom will explain how your brain truly likes to operate and how to harness that power.

04:55

Now that you understand the Mental File Folder System it is time to create your first Filing System. For many students, their Body Files are their favorite Filing System, and nearly everyone uses their Body Files for the rest of their life.

10:37

You now have a Filing System, so let’s use it! In this video, Tom starts walking you down the path of how to use your Body Files by teaching you a Shopping List. We know that most of you didn’t attend the class with the intention of remembering to buy the milk, but it serves as an easy starting point.

11:17

In this video, Tom, continues showing you the Do's and Don'ts of Gluing Images to your Body Files. At this point, you are starting to experience how this will apply in other areas of your life beyond Shopping Lists.

05:41

Back in the studio, Tom shares with you the most commonly asked questions and the solutions. Many students are asking things like: “What happens if my list changes?”, “Will remembering this list screw up my next list?”, “How do I enter things into my Long-term memory?” and much more.

03:00

We find Tom back in the Live Workshop and he is explaining your Knowledge Bank, which is where you store information for the long-term with instant access. It will amaze you that it is so easy to enter anything into your Knowledge Bank if you know how to do it.

06:45

Most students understand the idea that if you put good food into your body that you will feel better but many don’t know exactly what those foods are or they can’t seem to remember to buy them at the store. Not only does Tom share his expertise of the best brain foods, he also explains “Why” they work, and teaches you how to remember which foods to get the next time you are shopping.

04:38

Now, that you know how the Mental File Folder System works and you’ve practiced with the shopping list it is time to get more Real World applications. Tom begins to teach us a simple To-Do List and the basic Do’s and Don’ts of a list of this type.

06:45

You are really “getting” how this works for a To-Do List, and so is the rest of the group. In this video, Tom starts to have the group give ideas of To-Do items and then you get to start coming up with your own ideas for “Images”. This is a powerful step in your development.

09:06

Before you Test your To-Do List Tom leads you through a mental pre-test and then he uses the group to explain why the system works...even when it doesn’t work. Then he walks you through more examples of Do’s & Don’ts of File-Image-Glue.

07:34

It is time for your second Filing System. Tom is going to lead you and the group around the meeting room to create Files and then you will begin Gluing Images to those Files. You will want to pay extra attention to this video because Tom is going to use it for one of the coolest most important applications of all.

06:48

It is time for your second Filing System. Tom is going to lead you and the group around the meeting room to create Files and then you will begin Gluing Images to those Files. You will want to pay extra attention to this video because Tom is going to use it for one of the coolest most important applications of all.

08:13

In Part 2, you will be Gluing the second half of the Room List onto the Room Files and getting more practice on the Right way to glue images. Understanding the right way to have the Image interact with the File is essential for Glue and for real world application.

Section 4: Real World Applications
07:13

One of the most sought after skills in the professional world is the ability to give a presentation without using any notes. In this video, Tom shows you how you can use the Mental File Folder System to remember your speeches, whether they are in front of one person or a big group.

02:38

This video will blow you away. You've learned the Room List and can probably recite every Image that was Glued around the room, but now you can see how to actually use it for giving speeches without using any notes. AND this is a great talk about the Keys to Success.

06:41

Many of our clients professional careers have changed for the better by learning this skill. Tom shares a couple real world stories on how others have used FIG to give presentations and what that has done for their careers and self-esteem.

Section 5: Half-Way There!
07:24

The first half of the workshop is wrapping up in this video and here Tom walks you through a review of all of the lists you've learned so far. A huge Bonus is that Tom also shows you how quickly you can learn something as complicated as the Solution to the Quadratic Equation, and you will be able to see where you could apply that technique in your own life.

01:58

To begin the second half of the workshop it is always a good idea to do a quick review of what you've learned so far. Tom also shares stories from the Grandmasters of Memory that will help you have even more confidence in your ability.

07:39

To begin the second half of the workshop it is always a good idea to do a quick review of what you've learned so far. This review also gets your brain fresh to take on the second half's lessons about how to take File-Image-Glue into the real world.

10:26

In the first half of the workshop you learned how to use your Body Files for recalling your To-Do List. What if you knew the 6 best things to do every day to keep your brain feeling fresh and sharp. Tom walks you through those 6 best to-do's and you will be able to learn them in literally no-time.

02:18

Everyone has some numbers in their life that they would like to be better at remembering. When you learned in the first half how to remember the Quadratic Equation you saw that you can use the Unicorn List. This video has Tom walking you through how to apply the Unicorn List to phone numbers, PIN numbers, serial codes, parking spots, and a lot more.

07:24

Tom refers to this as the set up for Day 2 during the video, but for you watching it is the same as set up for the second half of the workshop. Watching this will let you know what you are in for in the second half and what you can expect to take away.

Section 6: Second Half Start - Let's do this!
09:12

How do you recall abstract concepts if your brain thinks in Images? There are two main methods for turning abstract concepts into Images and in this video Tom walks you through Method #1 and discusses the Trigger Concept.

06:50

Now that you understand Method #1 for turning abstract concepts into Images you are ready for more complex strategies. Method #2 for turning abstracts into Images is the next evolution above Method #1. Tom shows you how doing this is super helpful and fun.

06:26

At this point in using Method #2 for turning abstracts into Images you have learned how to do it with many examples and you've probably started wondering how to use it in examples when there are no smaller bite sized pieces and no more ideas for Images are coming to you. Phonetic sounds are a tool that can help take Method #2 to entirely new level.

03:53

Phonetic twins really begin to make sense during this video (if they haven't already). Towards the end of the workshop is when we fully dive into learning and recalling names but in this video you begin to get a taste of what is coming down the road. To turn names into Images you will eventually be using Method #1 & #2 and Phonetics and here Tom shows you three specific examples of how to use Phonetic twins.

06:40

Towards the end of the workshop is when we fully dive into learning and recalling names but in this video you begin to get a taste of what is coming down the road. To turn names into Images you will eventually be using Method #1 & #2 and Phonetics and here Tom shows you many examples of different names. You and the group actually get to come up with the Name as Tom gives you the Image.

Section 7: Learning Foreign Languages and Minimizing Stress
02:20

Foreign Languages are another example of an Abstract Concept that if you want to recall the translations you will need to have created Images. If you don't know what the word means you won't be able to use Method #1 so this video is great examples of using Method #2. Watching this will explain how you can learn any foreign language by using File-Image-Glue.

03:19

Why does this technique work so well and why isn't this taught in schools? Those two answers are related and in this video Tom explains what the Grandmasters have to say about both of those questions. The answer will also give all of your Glue a great boost, when you understand the lowest common denominator of your brain.

04:26

Do you routinely lose your keys, wallet, purse, glasses, etc.? In this video, Tom shows you how to use File-Image-Glue to never misplace your important items ever again, and it literally will only take you a split second of awareness to do this technique.

08:57

The final Filing System that you will learn during the workshop is the House Files. Learning what makes your House Files strong is the catalyst for having an amazing experience when Tom leads the House Files Exercise. Take the time to watch this video so that your House Files are created the right way.

02:31

You should now have your House Files created with a strong foundation, and in this video Tom leads you through exercises that help embed those Files into your Mind's Eye and eliminate the white noise of other “stuff” in your house.

02:13

Stress is the biggest killer of your memory and in this video, Tom, explains a very simple way to reduce the stress you feel. Most people do not know how to “properly” breath in a way to engage their entire respiratory system, watching this will teach you how.

08:04

Knowing all of your House Files in order is the foundation to start from, and knowing them at the speed of light is the next evolution. Tom leads you through an exercise to build speed during this video where your House Files become unconscious.

12:04

Are you ready to leave the nest? You are! All of your File-Image-Glue practice has lead to this point, where you get to try doing every aspect of the system by yourself. Whatever your results are, it is a good thing, because the most important factor in this video is you finally understanding Glue. Tom will ask “Who understand Glue better?” and everyone will raise their hand...including you.

07:32

Taking the exercises from the classroom and moving them to the real world is what Tom does well, and here he is helping you connect the dots. After students finish the House Files Exercise they normally feel like they are really “getting” it, but often they don't realize just how far they have come during the workshop. Prepare to be amazed at what you can now accomplish with these skills.

07:47

Everyone who learns anything goes through these Four Stages of Learning at some point in their life. Tom is showing you how it has applied throughout your life and specifically how it has applied during this workshop. This is also the video to watch if you want to take your Memory Training to the Mastery level.

Section 8: Remembering Names
10:24

There are two key factors in when it comes to creating or building strong relationships. One is that everyone’s favorite subject is themselves and two, is that the #1 thing people want you to remember about them is their name. We have come to the section in the workshop where we learn how to use File-Image-Glue with people’s names.

07:29

Creating Images for everyone's name becomes easier and easier with this video. Tom walks you through real world examples and the entire class begins to see the lightbulbs above their heads lighting up.

07:29

How about some more names practice? Tom continues to lead you and the group through more examples and role playing as the class begins to wrap up. Don't worry, once you stop watching the live workshop here you will have access to videos with hundreds of names to Images examples. The live workshop may be ending but your habit forming videos are just about to begin. Congrats on making it this far!
