Goal Visualization

There is a strong connection between mental pictures and emotions. If you visualize something happy, you will feel happier and if you visualize something sad, you will start to feel sad. Here is one way to take advantage of this phenomenon.

Pick a goal that you want to achieve. You may want to start with a small goal and work your way up to bigger goals as you gain practice with this technique. Let's say that your goal is to go bowling and get two strikes in a row. Close your eyes and picture yourself bowling. Try to involve all of your senses. How does the bowling alley sound? What does the ball feel like? Do you notice particular smells? Visualize yourself getting the two strikes in a row. Pay attention to your feelings and recognize how much you will enjoy achieving this goal. This visualization will help your mind prepare for achieving the goal.

Teaching Mnemonics

Most teachers do not want their students to simply memorize facts. Teachers tend to put more emphasis on advanced skills such as reasoning, problem solving and synthesis. Memorization is seen as a lesser skill, and as a result most classrooms do not teach mnemonics. What is often overlooked is that memorization is a necessary first step. If the students cannot remember the facts, there is little hope that they will be able to use them to solve problems or synthesize new ideas. With effective mnemonic instruction, students could get past the memorization step much more quickly and spend more time on advanced educational goals.
