Always remember other people’s name. It’s one of the secrets of success from Dale Carnegie’s book How to Win Friends and Influence People. He writes, “Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” I could not have chosen better wording to express the importance of remembering someone’s name. Although published in 1936, this rule is still applicable, if not more important in today’s technology-mediated communication. Sometimes we forget how powerful first impressions are when interacting with someone face-to-face. It shows respect because there’s nothing worse than saying “hey you”. And remembering the other persons name will improve your social, business, and personal life – it is the one golden rule to live by. There are memory tricks such as impressions, repetitions, and associations; just find a method that is suitable to your thinking process. No one said it would be easy, I’m just saying it’s going to be worth it.
