Hi Art of Memory (Hive),
Again awesome community, I have been able to learn loads from reading the various articles and special shoutout to @Mayarra who has been super helpful.
So Gents and Ladies, as part of my day job, I evaluate the development of commercial properties. Invariably, the types of information I remember are pretty standard. In my case, I would like to recall eight types of categories with sub-points of information. I have listed those categories and some sub-points below as an example.
Originally, I imagined having one memory palace for each development project. I am working on a project right now called Olive, with future projects likely to be named either types of spices or fruits.
So I imagined walking through a giant Olive, in the Giant Olive, there is a winding staircase in the middle, with four ground room floors and four first room floors.
Right now I don’t have any memory palaces which have the layout as below. I will have to imagine / create one of which I am struggling with.
I am faced with the following issues. Any feedback / suggestions will be much welcomed!
What is the best way to create a memory palace with similar layouts without getting confused (bearing in mind that I may be working up to 5-10 projects a year)
If I had to add another category of information i.e another door, should I move room no.5 to the ground floor?
Within the first ground room floor, since I do not have a layout that I am intimately familiar with nor is the information in a sequential form. How do I remember that I have 3 Loci in this room? Also, how do I associate a term like ‘area size’ to a locus within the room?
When I replicate this first ground room floor into my second project, again it will have Area Size, Land Cost and Stamp Duty, do I recreate the same 3 loci in that room to make it consistent? will i confused myself?
- Land (first ground room floor)
- Area size- 50 acres (Sansa Stark shooting ice shards)
- Land cost – 2 dollars per acre (Sakura wrapping bandages)
- Land stamp duty – 71 (Hermoine Granger eating books)
- Purchase Price (second ground room floor)
- EV – 50m (Glenn Quagmire flips)
- Equity Value – 25.80 (Joffrey Lannister snaps)
- Capital value –2,000 (Lord Varys gives birth)
- Hold period – 10 years (Pain flogs back)
- Buildings (third ground room floor)
4.Rental (fourth ground room floor)
5.Bank Loans (fifth room – first floor)
Operating Expenses (sixth room – first floor)
Tax (seventh room – first floor)
Sale (eith room – first floor)
