of the brain. By involving more of the brain during learning, we
remember more of what we learn.

hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm

done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things. Steve Jobs

Primacy & Recency Effect
Diagram source: http://wps.prenhall.com/hss_wade_psychology_7_mru/21/5605/1435121.cw/-/1435123/index.html
When asked to recall a list of items in any order (free recall), people tend to begin recall with the
end of the list, recalling those items best (the recency effect). Among earlier list items, the first
few items are recalled more frequently than the middle items (the primacy effect).

Mnemonics are learning memory techniques that help learners recall larger pieces of
information, especially in the form of lists like characteristics, steps, stages, parts, phases, etc.
The Method of Loci (Memory Palace) is a method of memorizing information by placing each item to
be remembered at a point along an imaginary journey. The information can then be recalled in a
specific order by retracing the same route through the imaginary journey.

"If you can dream it,
you can do it."
- Walt Disney
THE DREAMER
What are you trying to make or achieve?
What excites and inspires you about it?
If you could wave a magic wand and do anything you like
what would you create? How would it look? What could
you do with it? How would that make you feel?
THE REALIST
What resources do you need to make this happen
people, money, materials and technology?
Whats your plan?
What obstacles will you face? How will you get round
them?
THE CRITIC
At critical stages of the project, step back from your work and
ask yourself:
How does this look? What about the big picture? And the
fine detail? How do I feel when I examine it?
How would it look to a customer? A user? A member of
the audience? The client? An expert in this field?
Is this the best I/we can do? What would make it better?
