The list of successful people with powerful memories is long and varied and includes such famous figures as George Washington (who was reportedly able to call every soldier under his command by name), Franklin D. Roosevelt, General Charles de Gaulle and General George Marshall.
Winston Churchill it is said could recall so much of Shakespeare’s work from memory that when he went to see a play he would often recite the lines from the audience and distract the actors.
The poet John Milton, who was blind, composed “Paradise Lost” in his mind 40 lines at a time and then recited them to a scribe.
Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, has been known to amaze his colleagues by remembering hundreds of lines of source code from the original basic programming language he developed.
Julius Caesar’s memory was so sharp that he could dictate four letters to his secretaries simultaneously.

Effortlessly remember important dates, appointments, meetings and schedules weeks, months or even years ahead without missing a single one!
Painlessly remember information that will boost your career, skyrocket your grades and save yourself the sheer inconvenience of having to carry thick references!
