Club meeting — Memory

On January 9, our Club invited Mr. KF Lee, a memorization expert and “mental athlete” who shared with us his upbringing and his trained talent for memorizing any patterns thrown at him. He is the Hong Kong record holder of many memorization challenges, and is skilled at memorizing random numbers, names, human faces, cards, images etc. He also believes that memorization is a skill that can be learned, and proved as such by conducting an experiment whereby Harbour members were taught a method of memorization and then were asked to memorize a sequence of random objects. Mr. Lee proved that Harbour members’ memory is not as bad as we may think! Mr. Lee also shared with us how persistence overcomes failures and difficult tasks, as exemplified by his business successes after repeated failures as well as various bike tours.
