Remembering people’s names

Professionally, one of my biggest problems is that I just can not seem to remember people’s names. This of course does not happen with friends and family, nor with colleagues that I work with on a day-to-day basis, but when I meet new people I tend to forget their names before even having told them my name.

I ran across this short, yet brilliant, blog by Michael Ray Hopkin discussing exactly this problem, and presenting five simple steps to take to start remembering people’s names.
