First off, I’m a complete newbie to the memory game. I’ve done a bunch of reading about memory and mnemonics and I think I’m ready to start applying what I’ve been learning.
The first thing I want to do is memorize some of the new suburbs in my city. I’m an appliance repairman and I’m always going into new subdivisions with new streets that are not in the GPS systems yet.
What would be the best method or methods to use to put these streets into my permanent memory? The problem that I’m having is that the streets are not on a squaregrid. They wind all around. There are names and shapes and positions to remember. Just not sure how to put a system together.
Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.
