"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Dilip Mukerjea, writing in his book, 'Building BrainPower: Turning Grey Matter into Gold', offers the following Action Points for Your Memory Management:

1) Inject colour and diversity into your life.

2) Look, think, link, and ink the stimuli of life; it will build your memory muscle.

3) Make dramatic beginnings and entrances (start starts!).

4) Dare to imagine, unleash your sense of fun! Risk it and realise what you have been missing!

5) Observe with a purpose, then link, connect, and realise whatever you wish to remember.

6) Take regular breaks between prolonged learning sessions.

7) Apply your memory skills to numbers, data, names and faces.

8) Use the Memory Principles constantly.

9) Review constantly - see things again, preferably using Mind Maps, Imagination techniques, and interactive discussions; this practice embeds information into long term memory.

10) Ensure that your diet is healthy; remember that three-quarters of the word 'diet' is terminal ('die') if what you ingest is unhealthy.
