I have been playing around with memory palaces and number-systems for quite a while now, but I never seem to get significant progress.
My main problem is, that I either start studying memory techniques - or actually studying the required material and both it’s application.
So I tend to do the later in the spirit of ‘cannot lose anymore time’ and end up with half-done things.
I tried to concentrate on few palaces with very powerful details, but still ended up, actually ‘engraving’ my required knowledge via “rote” learning into the palaces, basically creating additional work instead of making it easier or faster.
I then tried to focus on the faster part - but this has not worked out either. I stabilize on plus/minus 10 % of the original time it took me, to recreate those paths.
I have been at my latest attempt for two months now and I keep failing -
does anyone have an idea, how I could go about this in a more structured way, in which I generate actual progress, instead of going slower every day and not learning new things?
Of course the retrieval process makes me so tired, that I usually end up just relying on rote learning the rest of the day…
Thank you and have a good start of the week!
