Improve your life with better learning and memory skills
Discover how a new learning system is already helping
thousands of people , across the country and worldwide, improve their life
by changing the way they learn and remember.
Have you ever stopped and thought about how your ability to learn influences
your life and prosperity? Take a moment and
- Your ability to learn during school heavily influences your grades,
the quality of your education, and the choices you have for a career.
- Your ability to learn 'on the job' has a significant impact on your
employment, promotion prospects and overall income or business success.
- While your employment may provide formal training, how much do you remember
2 weeks, 6 months or a year after the course? The value you get from such
training often depends on your personal learning skills.
- As the retirement age increases, you'll need a well-functioning
brain for longer. You can ward off degenerative brain diseases and
age-related mental decline through continual learning and mental
While learning is a fundamental skill, it's surprising that it's so
hard to find accurate and up-to-date information on how to learn well. You may
be like many others who believe the Internet should make it
easier to find such information. Instead, it's helped many organizations
make a lot of money selling inaccurate and out-of-date products and
information. Let's look at some examples:
- Subliminal Learning and Sleep Learning. Millions of tapes & CDs sold
- however much reliable research
shows it doesn't work.
- Superlearning, or 'music for learning.' There are dozens of products
available - from CDs of 'accelerated learning music' to books and courses.
Research shows that while music helps relaxation, it doesn't directly help
the learning process.
- Dietary Supplements for 'Memory.' Part of the multi-billion-dollar
natural supplements market. Few products have a significant impact on memory
when tested in controlled trials, and some are dangerous!
Other products, systems and authors only provide part of the answer. For
example, systems like NLP and authors like Tony Buzan, Kevin Trudeau (Mega
Memory) and Colin Rose provide good information but only in
Why is there such a large interest in memory improvement products? When you
consider that humans, on average, forget 80% or more of material they've
learned after only 24 hours, you can start to understand why people are
seeking ways to help 'lock in' information. Unfortunately though, many people
are looking for the 'silver bullet'
to memory improvement. There is no silver bullet.
We can, however, tell you what does work. After reading this page you
will have a much better way to think about learning. You'll immediately be able
to start using this knowledge to work out for yourself the value of various
learning improvement products. You'll also be on your way to better learning
and improved memory - just by understanding the simple principle described
The core principle - mental fitness
Improved memory and learning come from mental
fitness. Your mental fitness determines how well you will learn and
remember new information. Your mental fitness controls how effectively you can
use your brain to achieve the goals you want and the
prosperity you wish for.
A good way to think about this principle is that mental fitness is
similar to physical fitness. Let's look at some examples:
- Your natural muscle performance doesn't differ that much from the rest of
the population. It's how you train and exercise them that make them
either strong or weak. Similarly, your natural brain performance does not
differ that much from other people as well. It's how you train and use your
'brain muscle' that makes a real difference.
- You can improve your athletic fitness through many activities. Similarly,
you can also improve your mental fitness through many activities. Some are
easy, some are challenging. It's often the more challenging ones that have the
- You don't expect you can run a marathon the day after going for a jog for
the first time in five years. Similarly, you can't learn one memory technique
and suddenly your memory drastically improves. You can, however, start to see
results early in your training program, spurring you on to better fitness. Your
brain rewards you for positive learning experiences.
- Like improving your athletic fitness, improving your memory fitness has
benefits in many areas of your life. Employment, relationships, confidence
and leisure are a few. In today's economic climate,
self-directed learners have a great advantage over those who wait
for the next organized course to come along.
- If you don't take care of physical fitness, it's more likely you'll develop
physical illnesses and diseases such as heart disease. Similarly, if you don't
take care of your mental fitness it's more likely you'll develop brain
illnesses such as Alzheimer's disease, or that you'll experience age-related
mental decline earlier in life. Both physical and mental fitness can help your
body and brain work effectively for longer.
When you think about this principle, it makes sense. Hopefully you
can begin to see why many memory improvement products don't work all that well,
or at all. If a product promises significant memory improvements
without much mental effort on your part, be suspicious! That's like saying
you can improve your physical fitness without lifting a finger. Or it's like
saying you can lose weight simply by taking a pill. You would be wary of those
claims - why would memory be any different?
Introducing Memletics - Memory Athletics
Now is a good time to introduce Memletics. The
Memletics Accelerated Learning System is a new way to develop and
improve your learning skills and mental fitness. Memletics helps you learn
faster and keep what you've learned for longer. It's based on research from
medicine, neurology and education, as well as experiences of the author and
others over the past twenty years.
The name Memletics comes from two words - Memory and Athletics.
From the beginning, Memletics has been based on using mental fitness
as the core enabler of better learning and better memory. Memletics uses
several approaches to help you accelerate your learning:
- It provides an integrated learning system. This gives you a clear
structure and specific steps to help you achieve top mental fitness and
highly effective learning practices.
- It recognizes your brain's natural abilities and uses them
effectively. Your brain has an immense capability for learning, and Memletics
helps you use more of your unused capability.
- It helps your brain perform well, from both a physical and mental
perspective. With some knowledge of what positively and negatively impacts the
brain, you can help it perform at its best.
- It helps you use new technology to enhance your learning. There are
valuable and affordable tools now available that can significantly improve
learning and memory.
Memletics is unique because it combines research from not one but
several areas of human performance. Using Memletics and accelerated
learning you can rediscover (or for some people, discover for the first time)
the satisfaction of learning well.
About the Author - Sean Whiteley
Over the past twenty years, I've been using Memletics (and earlier versions
of it) to help me learn faster in several areas. For example:
- I completed a three-year accelerated degree in business and
information technology, and then joined one of the top management and
technology consultancy organizations in the country. I was promoted to
a managerial position only five years after joining.
- I completed a Microsoft 'Systems Engineer' certification in my spare
time, with an average score of 93% in the exams.
- I completed my private pilot's license, with an average
score of 96% for the theory tests, flying solo after only 8 hours of
training, and completing the unrestricted component of training in close
to the minimum hours the school had seen - especially for a part timer
flying on weekends.
- I've researched, written and published - worldwide - the
Memletics Accelerated Learning Manual. I'm now helping many other people
learn how to be a Memletic Learner.
As you can see, the Memletics Manual is not just about learning for
academic purposes. It's a practical guide you can use for a wide variety of
