Being memorable equals getting picked.

Jeffrey Pfeffer

Why does memorability matter?

No one who is unmemorable is going to be chosen for an important job, because one cannot select what one cannot remember.

— Jeffrey Pfeffer (from his book “Power: Why Some People Have It — and Others Don’t”)

What makes you memorable?

Different is BETTER than better.

— Sally Hogshead

Be memorable in a good way

Don’t be memorable in a bad way
