RECOGNIZE THE VALUE OF A NAME

How do you feel when someone calls you by the wrong name? How about when you kindly correct the person and spend time with him, and he still gets your name wrong? How about when people haven’t seen you for a long time, and they still remember your name? Doesn’t it make you feel good? (And doesn’t it also impress you?) When people care enough to know your name, they make you feel valued.

My friend Jerry Lucas is known as “Dr. Memory.” He has spent the years following his hugely successful run in the NBA helping schoolchildren and adults improve their memories through a variety of innovative techniques. One of the things he teaches is called the SAVE Method.
Here’s how it works:

S —Say the name three times in conversation.

A —Ask a question about the name or about the person.

V —Visualize the person’s prominent physical or personality feature.

E —End the conversation with the name.

Years ago Jerry showed how useful his method could be by remembering the names of every guest in the audience at the Tonight Show. I believe it can also help you remember the first and last names of the people you meet. If you work at it, you will become better at remembering people’s names.

  •  “You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.

Daily Storytelling Time 

I wanted to change the world

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.

I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
