How Do You Remember Other People's Names?Posted on the 20 May 2011 by Classycareergirl @classycareer
Dale Carnegie said in his book How To Win Friends and Influence People, " Most people don't remember names, for the simple reason that they don't take the time and energy necessary to concentrate and repeat and fix names indelibly in their minds. They make excuses for themselves; they are too busy."
And how impressed are you when someone you barely met actually remembers your name? William Shakespeare once said: "There is no sound so sweet as the sound of one's own name." When you say another person's name in conversation, you make them feel important and special.
I believe that one of the steps to become a classy career girl is being able to remember other people's names when you meet them. That is why I want to hear from you. Leave a comment with an answer to the below question. I will share your answers on a new blog post next week.
