I'm completely inspired

I've been reading and listening to Anthony Metivier for over two weeks now. Last week I successfully drew and drilled my first memory palace, testing myself on the memorization of a poem. It went really, really well. For two weeks before that, I had experimented with memorizing a different poem using spaced repetition with no memory palace. The two poems were similar in length and style. It took me three weeks the memorize the entire poem using the spaced memorization technique. It took me three days to memorize using Metivier's method of location, imagery, and action in a memory palace.

I love to learn. Until just a couple months ago, I never put in real time to learning how to learn. I knew about mnemonics, repetition, kinesthetics and other tactics, but I used them in an unsystematic way. When I was a young person, I could get away with a haphazard approach. After I turned 30, I began to feel the friction of age slowing me down. After I became a dad to a very energetic kid, all bets were off.

All of my learning resources were gobbled up by learning how to be a parent, with a little left over for the learning necessary to keep my career bobbing along. A deep frustration set in. It was so deep I could not see it for what it was. I hopped and skipped from topic to topic, hoping that the next one would "just catch". I hatched plans to sell my employer on sending me to grad school, but I had no clear academic plan, and I could not subdue the nagging suspicion that this would be a bad investment of time and money.

I simply missed learning, and I did not see that until early January 2019. I saw an ad for Barbara Oakley's Coursera mooc Learning how to Learn, which was wonderful. I read Peak by Anders Ericsson. I found Faster to Master, and from there I found Anthony Metivier. From Anthony, I found Benny the Irish Polyglot and Richard Wiseman's 59 Seconds. And I have been soaking it all up like a pig in cool mud. I'm using techniques from all these wise folks to learn, and truly remember, an array of subjects from statistics to scotch whisky, from project management techniques to Portuguese, from American indigenous cultures to art crime. And I'm very happy about it.

Great for boosting memory

As a person whose suffered from poor memory most of his life, the information given is easy to digest and keeps me interested in listening. Anthony is well spoken and I am very excited to use his techniques on my language learning journey.
