6 steps to effectively remember important conversations:
(Active Listening)

1. Put down all the work, mobile phone etc. and listen more intently.

2. Look at them while they speak. Non-verbal cues add so much more to
conversations. What's the expression on their face? Do they look tensed?
Remember, humans are visual beings!

3. Acknowledge the speaker by nodding or verbal sounds - hmm, okay, sure etc.
This helps encourage the speaker to go on and share information freely.

4. Do not cross your arms! As per Evolutionary Psychology, 'crossing your arms'
make you feel defensive and you remember less information than usual.

5. Ask questions! When you ask questions, you get clarity and remember the
information for longer time.

6. Summarize what they said.
