Your loved ones. Your best friends. Your colleagues. Could you call them if you needed to?
This skill is an enabler for leaving the house with your phone. If you need to call home you can use a phone box but only if you know what number to dial.
Remembering phone numbers just takes practice. Find the rhythm. Find the pattern. Set them to song, if it helps. Practise recall by dialing the numbers rather than using the saved number.
The Analogue Skills Manifesto proclaims ‘you have everything you need’. It is an invitation to go out into the world without the comfort of a connected device. You can step out with more confidence if you know you can call someone for help.
This is especially true if you have taken the time to remember some important phone numbers.
