I was reading How to win and influence friends - Dale Carnegie. In that it was mentioned that Andrew Carnegie always urged to remember each persons' name he knew. And amazingly he remembered also. Dale consider this quality of Andrew to be one of his success formula. Another book Leadership management from Monk who sold his ferrari - Robin Sharma also quoted the same thing. JM was giving an example to Peter that if you supposed to meet a stranger in party and after some time you will realize that you have forgotten his/her name. Does this happen to you also? May be you are not paying any attention to what he is speaking, infact you are just getting that persons gestures and trying to get feel from his apperance.
Long ago I had a chance to attend Memory increasing program. In that first lesson they taught me is of remembering the name. I would like to share those with you all. First time you meet any person then pay attention to what he is speaking and repeat his name in you mind twice or thrice (depends on your efficiency :D ) and after that try to co-relate person's name with something very unique something strange. Or even you can can link with the person you already know.
Hope from onwards you we all we remember the names of each other... By the way oops sorry I forgot your name? :D
