Did you know?

May 22nd is the International Sherlock Holmes Day, its creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday. In the original books, Sherlock Holmes lived at 221b, Baker Street, in London, but he never said “Elementary, my dear Watson”. Can you guess where it comes from?




How to develop Sherlock Holmes-like power

Increase your powers of observation

► Give yourself challenges that force you to slow down: observe one new thing everyday. You will notice small details in your environment and daily life. And everything that’s out of place.
► Take notes to focus your attention: write descriptions and draw pictures of what you see. The more you do this on paper, the better you’ll do it on the fly.
► Meditate daily: it will teach you how to concentrate on what’s in your head.

Power up your deduction skills

► Analyse what you see or read, and ask questions: “Why is this important?” or “Why do I want to remember it?”
► Form connections between what you see and what you know: for example, mindmaps are a great way to make connections between all the things you know.
► Increase your knowledge base: Holmes is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge.
