Most common method of tying a tie have over 10 steps of knot tying instructions. It's ridiculously difficult to remember it, especially if you're tying your tie very rarely.
Are there any easily rememberable life hacks to tie a tie?

It seems to me this question is looking for a simple way to tie a tie, yet is shows the "Windsor Knot" with the example image. This is a difficult knot to tie in the first place.
I suggest going down a notch or two in styles of knot, and go for the simpler "Regular Knot. It has 3 basic steps:
I tie all of my neckties like this and it takes me longer to button my shirt than it does to tie this knot.
There is a "ninja" knot-tying skill demonstrated by CrazyRussianHacker user on his video.
Here are the simple steps:
Put the tie on the table with thick side to your right and the thin side to your left.
Twist both endings to make a loop.
(tricky part) Grab the loop from your left (thin side), twist it and put it under the right loop
Now grab the shorter side and put it through both loops way down next to thick side.
Grab the main looped part and pull it on both sides. Adjust it based on your needs.
It needs some practise, but once you get use to it, you'll be amazed with the results. If few years old kids can do it, you can do it either!
Follow above directions for either the windsor or regular. Have someone lift your collar and snip the back of the tie. Attach (glue or sew) velcro to the back so you can now attach the tie without untying and tying it again. Will be perfect every time and quick, quick, quick. Some will call this cheating, but no one else but you needs to know.
Many ways to tie a tie. The "simplest" tie knot imo would be the 4 in hand knot. They're not recommended on spread collared shirts because the finished knot isnt wide like the full windsor. Great resource here: http://www.ties.com/how-to-tie-a-tie/four-in-hand
