I set it as a goal to achieve Level 10 in number digits in late 2019. I was so close countless amount of times. And today as of 20 June 2020 I have managed to do it using the shaper methods.
I have not been practicing a lot due being busy with projects and preparations for a video course I am working on.
Lately I have put in some practice into my memory palaces, and it made a big difference.
I’ve also been training with Johnny Briones 2 times a week on ML as a training partner, and it pushed me harder to practice my palaces and my paired links. This was what I needed, and Johnny has been very encouraging and special thanks to him for giving me the motivation.
I have put in some practice twice a day memorising 2 sets of 60 digits at time trying to get to 70 digits.
My next goal is 80 digits in 1 minute. However, I am still happy to get 50-60 digits with each practice. It will be a great achievement to get 80 and I look forward to it.
The shaper system is proving to show some good results, even at my age of 50 year old. I am sure it is more than possible to get 80 digits in a single minute or even in a less time with my system. I do think younger people can do this faster than I can, but it shows that the age so far is not a barrier.
I’m a happy chap today. I’m going to reward myself with a nice Espresso now
