I feel like many memory projects are very “batchy”. I mean there is a long (throughput) time between starting and having something memorized. It’s like a mini-project. For example, when I’m memorizing a book, I decide which facts per chapter, select a memory palace, plan the places, write down the images, then visualize it, etc. Is it clear what I am talking about with respect to “batchy”?
What I would like is to find a way of using memory systems where I don’t need to know in advance, and don’t need to plan. This way, if life gets in the way or something and interrupts the project, at least I will have memorized something. Yet, I still have some kind of organization.
I recall that Alex Mullen while adapting his techniques for university he did a kind of “memory town” where he would just stick subject matter as it came up.
Does anyone have good ideas on this?
