Well, Ai, I am not sure if I follow your time line since I gave you this advice 6 days ago, so how could my advice have helped you learn anything substantial in 2 months?
But I do think that the advice I give there is good and can help make a difference. Thanks for saying it worked for you.
When I started, such good advice wasn’t readily available and it can take a while before you figure out what works best for you and you can get discouraged along the way. That is why I always recommend to learn the skill with others who have lots of with experience or skill when you have a chance.
But I would like a return favor from you, if you would be so kind. I am running an international honorary memory competition for this coming May 4-5. Even if you think you may be too busy that weekend to participate, I would appreciate if you registered any way. The reason is that you may win the competition by just registering, as we may select the winner completely at random; it is an honorary competition.
If you do have time to try it out, then it would be great too and if you can get others to join you, you may end up producing the largest memory competition in South America ever. And that can really go a long way to helping you with you memory even more than online exchanges here.
PS. At the Canadian Memory Championships, we are focusing on this new type of competition because the competitions we do have right now at the world level yield two different world champions of memory, which is confusing.
We think it is key for the development of memory sports to have only one such champion and so we feel our competition is the way to go for now.
