Since today’s smartphones have the ability to store thousands of contacts, it’s pretty easy to just add a number to your address book and never worry about remembering it again.But what if you don’t have your phone or digital address book handy? Here’s a very simple way to memorize the most important numbers in your address book.
Delete important people in your life from your phones address book. Just save their phone number instead. I’m not saying everyone in your contacts, just a few people that you may ever need to reach in an emergency. I replaced their name with just their number instead and in a little over a week I know my whole immediate family as well as my close friends numbers just from seeing them pop up whenever they call/text instead of just seeing a name like “mum” or “Eric” pop up every time.
