If you listened to your Maximum Performance Memory CD that was given to you at the end of the Memory Training Workshop, you heard a track that dealt with how to memorize a calendar. To do this, you were asked to create images for the numbers 21-31. We often get emails from people that get stuck on creating images for the basic association for these numbers.
Therefore, I wanted to posts a list of possible images. Just remember that these are suggestions and there is no right or wrong picture. These are still using association, which is the most primitive memory technique.
For a more advanced technique, check out the CD program Advanced Numbers and Playing Cards.
Any image works as long as you create it and don’t change it.
If you have any other suggestions, please post them in the comment box.

If you are seriously about learning how to remember numbers, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Advanced Numbers and Playing Cards program. It teaches the mental file folder system for numbers, not just basic association, which was used on the tree list. Also, the last disc focuses exclusively on using your memory to increase your odds at winning in games of chance such as Blackjack and Texas Hold’em.
