I have heard of three main ways to track and remember imagery for a memory palace:
a) Don’t (just remember them)
b) Use a memory journal
c) Use an excel spreadsheet
For b) and c), what specific information do you keep track of? What have you found works for long term?
For me, I draw out the memory palace in my memory journal, and then I write down the spot number, specific location (e.g. chair by kitchen), keywords of what I want to encode, and then an explanation of the scene that unfolds.
However, this feels like a lot of work to do for each and I start to dread doing it. I would like to just give keywords and forgoe the scene/association part but I feel like I won’t remember what happens looking back.
