Umm where did I put my keys.....

Wonder if Einstein had the same problems?

According to Dr. Bill Klemm, Texas A&M University, you might be having problems with your memory because you are not using "the four R's":
•Register: Concentrate and really “log in” the information first. Don’t overwhelm your brain with more than five new items to memorize at a time.
•Relate: Assign each new memory a mental image—“Barbara with blue eyes,” for example.
•Rehearse: Repeat what you’re trying to remember right away. Address a new person by her first name as soon as you learn it.
•Recall: Test yourself in the hours after learning the new information.
