I want to remember birthdays and other annual events. I was thinking I would create an image of the person with a birthday hat on, and then use the Dominic method to associate the day and month. Then I thought I would Memory Palace with 12 rooms and put all the birthdays and events in the room.
So that seems like a workable solution, but the point of remembering these events or birthdays is so that I can be sure that I purchase a birthday card and send it in the post on time! So I thought it would be OK just to visit the room for May in the month of May, lookup everyone’s birthday and Bob’s your uncle. However, this too has a problem. What if the birthday is on the 1st of May? I will have already missed the window of opportunity to send a card (Posting on Facebook on the day is just being lazy in my opinion)
So is there a better way? Some type of journey I could use that lets me do a sort of running bi-weekly check? Anyone done anything like this before? Any suggestions for a better system or suggestions for improvements?
