People who really care about helping others succeed are memorable.

  • Those who open doors so that people can actually do the job they were hired to do are remembered even years later.
  • Sharing information with others without being asked is another way. It's the principle that if you want people to share with you, share with them.

In a world where vocabulary has narrowed down, those with a strong vocabulary stand out. Language should not be used for snobbery, but rather for creating a better understanding by using the right words.

Incorporating analogies and a dynamic turn of phrase can keep your vocabulary colorful.

People will likely forget up to 90 % of what you communicate. It means they are likely to forget your brand, your message, your call to action.

To become forgettable can kill your career. Remaining on people's minds requires you to become part of what they consider valuable.

Memorable people understand that stories stick. Those that can match a story with a message are more notable.

Use language to create a mental picture. Those around you will remember your words as if they were shown pictures.

The brain likes to move toward patterns. Doing something unexpected will break the norm and make you memorable.

For instance, instead of the usual email, send a hand-written thank-you note. Or dress differently to everyone else.

Our brains generally react first to outside stimuli like danger, security, or pleasure. 

When you approach another person, ask yourself what you can provide them to help protect them, make them more successful or safe, even feel better about themselves because they know you and what you can give them.

Agreeing with everything becomes white noise.
People who are willing to voice their opinion when it is contrary, even if it is just a different way of framing a concept, are more memorable.

Never stop learning

Research shows that people with more education have a greater cognitive reserve and this works as a protection in the face of mental decline.

But there's a twist to it: educated people tend to get Alzheimer's at a later age but once they get it, they're getting it at a higher load of the disease and appear to decline at a faster rate.

9 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Your Mind

Being aware of the constant dance between emotions and feelings could improve your decision-making ability.

  1. Every feeling begins with a stimulus.
  2. The stimulus leads to an unfelt emotion in the brain.
  3. Unfelt emotions cause the body to generate responsive hormones.
  4. The hormones enter the bloodstream and bring about positive or negative feelings

For example, when we feel threatened (stimuli), the initial label is fear (emotion) and happens unconsciously. Fear results in the production of fight-or-flight feelings (hormones), which helps our bodies to react (feelings).
