Corbanicum, use ctrl+f and type JoeMantegna, you will find the entire method I used to get sub20 in 20 days doing only 3 decks a day.
The thing you wan’t to do if you want to get better is insanely get out of your comfort zone. That way your brain can adapt. That’s what I did.
If it’s hard, you are getting better.
If itsn’t, you are doing it wrong. (If you want to improve fast)
But It was too much.
I improved my image recognition? Yes. A lot. Like from 1:00 to 27 in 50 minutes.
But yesterday and today I couldn’t focus at ANYTHING. My focus ability was completely depleted. And I had some insane brain fogs and some stupid mistakes trough the day (placed my house key in my refrigerator for no reason)
I usually read 1-2 hours a day, but today I couldn’t even read 5 pages correctly.
So, please, don’t review your 52 images 40 times in a single sitting and don’t follow that
Best tip you can get to improve fast is to meditate 20 min a day. Guaranteed.
I started to meditate almost the same time I started with memory practice, and when I started I just dropped my time like a rocket.(edit: wat, dropping like a rocket??)
If you want the real example, I was at 5min plateau for a week and started meditating day 14 (20min headspace).
day 16 I was at 4:48
and the same day I reached 2:58
and day 20 I reached sub2 min
26 I was at 1:12
It’s all documented here in this thread
Not even talking about the other 1000+ real life benefits aswell.
Start meditating today
Also, play on memoryleague. You will practice 10x faster.
Always be Replacing your images until you have a solid system.
And do with close images. Like, If you are an anime addict, please don’t use celebrities, etc…
Practiced (tried) and couldn’t do anything. The only thing I did was memorizing 28 decks in 60 seconds and then feeling really tired.
But hey! At least I had some progress…
And if you want a little hack to improve your time instantly, raw memorize the 3 cards before the last and don’t look at the last card.
Put them in the memory palace in the recovery time.
EDIT: Today I completely recovered and did 30 cards in 60 seconds
