I am awful when it comes to remembering names. I used to feel bad, but now it’s just not that important.
At one point I tried tricks like using alliteration to remember a name. But that hasn’t helped recently. I’ve been meeting about two dozen new faces every other day. So, I resort to re-introducing myself and being all, “yeah… we did meet…” and promptly forgetting the name. I tried to say their names back as they are introduced, but with so much information swirling through my mind in my new position, it seems my brain filters out the most obvious of courtesies.
I’m thinking I should resort to bringing in name tags and a Sharpie for each person I meet.
