The easiest way to remember things is to create an acrostic. The colors of the rainbow are "ROY G. BIV." The notes on a staff go "Every Good Boy Does Fine." (Proponents of the "Deserves Fruit" acrostic sometimes protest, but to be quite honest, every good boy does not deserve fruit.)
Still, even an acrostic isn't enough. The essence of memory is repetition. You must repeat the acrostic at least seven times in order for it to stick.
Without further ado, then: how to remember the names of the twelve disciples.
Simply Put, As Jesus enJoys Peanut Butter, Thus Jesus' Throng Should Joyously.
Simon the Cananean
Be careful, though, since repetition is also the essence of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Remember what happened to Philip Glass?
