I make notes of the names of the people I meet. You'd be surprised at how many people you meet in a day. Also, people tend to like that you remember them by name.

Life Pro Tip expanding on this: when at a party or a social occasion where you will be meeting lots of people whom you don't know, but who you really want to like you (like if you are meeting your all your significant other's friends at a party, say) - you can whip out your phone, stealthily, and use the "Notes" feature to write down names and help you remember them from the get-go. I find even just writing the names down helps solidify them in my mind!

At work, I usually lay down my iPad on the table to make notes during conversations. I've had multiple people remark that they feel like they're being listened to more because I'm actively writing down what they say.
