  • finding lost objects

    For finding a lost object, check out my method at www.professorsolomon.com.

    lost idea

    While the 12 Principles are basically for locating objects, I've also used them to retrieve an elusive thought or memory.

      Eureka Zone

      The professor's method actually works. I found particularily useful Principle Ten, about establishing a Eureka Zone.

        OK.. well I've been looking for something (cell phone manual) and it just hadn't turned up .. thinking.. well, I have nothing to lose .. will check out this site.

        YAY!!!
        I FOUND IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        I can't believe it !!!!!!!!

        Took quite a few steps, but I remained calm, and I found it in about 10 minutes.

        GREAT RESOURCE.

        Chapters.ca does not seem to have it in stock and indicates supplier is out, but if I can locate a copy I am going to give a copy of this book to my mother!!!

        THANK YOU !!!!!

          UNBELIEVABLE !!!!
          This method really works!!!!

          I just found something else I have been looking for, (old call display unit) for several weeks. This is truly incredible !!!! Found it even quicker than the last object and I have been waiting for this to "turn up" for a while (to no avail) and by this time was almost convinced I must have given it away! Again, just thought I had nothing to lose by trying this method...

          BTW, for anyone interested in this book, I finally tracked a new copy down through amazon.ca and was able to order it through a 3rd party seller.

          (I have absolutely NO relationship to the author and have never even heard of such a method available. Thank you Professor Solomon! You have made my week!!!!)

              common sense

              The experience described in the last post is typical. It's not magic--just codified common sense for "inducing" a lost object to turn up.

                2nd Principle

                Unfortunately, the Professor's second principle--"It's Not Lost--YOU Are"-- just about sums me up. What do I do?

                  Second Principle

                  Advice to Mary:

                  That Second Principle leads in a natural sequence to the Third--namely, "Remember the 3 C's" (Comfort, Calmness, and Confidence). And the Third gets you into the right frame of mind to proceed with the subsequent practical principles.

                  Try it, the next time you misplace something.

                    Still lost

                    I've tried, but my lost object (a piece of artwork) remains lost.

                      missing artwork

                      Did you search its Eureka Zone--meticulously?

                        Eureka Zone

                        I did search the " Eureka Zone"-- super-meticulously. It wasn't there.

                          think back

                          Don't give up--at least not yet.

                          Have you tried Principle Eight: "Think Back"? This principle assumes that you know where that missing object is, but that the memory has become buried in your consciousness. Fish for it!

                            Unsolicited Testimonial

                            I checked out these principles on the Professor Solomon website, and I've been making use of them quite successfully. Just this past Saturday, my wife was exasperated over losing a pair of scissors when she hadn't even gotten up from the table she was working at. I used the rule that what you are looking for is usually 18 to 24 inches from where it should be, and that it is just hidden from sight. Sure enough, I found the scissors in about 30 seconds. My wife had closed them up in a three-ring binder that was right on top of the table.

                            Good stuff! A classic example of simple, common-sense principles working like "magic."

                              Eureka zone works.

                              The common-sense of the Eureka zone really works for me. The lost objects can be usually found not more than 18inches from where they should be.
