This will be my first post here although definitely not my last - I’m really determined to start exercising the grey cells on a daily basis. It’s good to have a bit of support… and it seems like this is a great time to practice as the world has gone into temporary stasis.
Using the Dominic system, I’ve memorised a person/action for 00-99. I also have an object for each single digit from 0 to 9. I’m having a little trouble though when trying to memorise a long number with an uneven number of pairs. Say: 2058393742. I’d break this into 20-58 (person-action), 39-37 and then I’m left with a single pair of digits, 42. In my imagination I suppose I could have the final “person” holding some kind of prop which I could interpret as meaning “end of sequence” and I could always use the same prop. Just wondered if anyone using this system has an elegant way of achieving this? If it were a single digit then I could simply use the object I mention earlier.
Whenever I try to put this system into use I seem to find myself with endless questions about how to do things and why. It seems like a lot of thought needs to go into how to do things so that backtracking and wasted effort isn’t constant thorn in my side. Not sure if this is just me!
Thanks in advance for any assistance/tips.
