How to memorize passwords

toastmoartl says:
For some (mostly financial) services I need unique passwords and I don't want to write them down (for example the PIN for my credit card). If I don't use them regularly it's very easy to forgot them. If it's definitely importand I adjust a simple template that I send to my RTM-Import-Email-Account. RTM keeps asking to remember the password daily, then weekly and then monthly.

password for xxxx? today #Personal
password for xxxx? 2 days #Personal
password for xxxx? 3 days #Personal
password for xxxx? 4 days #Personal
password for xxxx? 5 days #Personal
password for xxxx? 6 days #Personal
password for xxxx? 1 week #Personal
password for xxxx? 2 week #Personal
password for xxxx? 3 week #Personal
password for xxxx? 1 month *monthly #Personal

Can you give a little more detail? I'm not sure what you mean about Import Email Account.

Hi krisfday,
The Import Email Address is an address assigned to your account which can be used to import a list of tasks. This page has more information on how to use it.

Hope that helps!

As David Allen (GTD founder) says: "Your mind is for having ideas, not for holding them". Therefore I would recommend using a secure password manager to store passwords. Then the password for that password manager is the last (and only) password you will have to remember.
