MMMPodcast Episode 001: 5 Ways To Ruin A Perfectly Good Memory Palace

TheMagneticMemoryMethodPodcast2150x150In this first session of the Magnetic Memory Method Podcast, I talk about the 5 ways we ruin our Memory Palace efforts when working with mnemonics.

You will learn:

  • How to create solid Memory Palace locations
  • How to create vivid imagery
  • How to include zany action
  • How to “rehearse the information you’ve memorized
  • How to use relaxation throughout the process for maximum success


The mistakes talked about in this episode of the podcast simply aren’t necessary. Please take this information about using a Memory Palace in the most sophisticated manner possible and put it to use.

Of the many mistakes, not picking a place for the information you want to memorize is amongst the deadliest you can make. You simply must use some kind of location-based memorization strategy if you want true success.

The only problem is that so many people struggle with identifying Memory Palaces.

That’s why I created the podcast episode How to Find Memory Palaces. It will help you find more Memory Palaces than you can shake a Magnetic stick at.

And then there are people who want to make changes to existing Palaces they’ve built. That’s not entirely recommended, but you can give renovating a Memory Palace a try and see how it works for you.

At the end of the day, a solid, unchanging Memory Palace will serve you best because it allows you to “magnetize” your properly created associative-imagery to the “roller coaster rails” of the MP journey. Without that certainty, you’ll wind up constantly second-guessing your Memory Palaces.

And doubt is a recipe for disaster.


Because you want all of your focus to land squarely on quickly finding and decoding the target information – the information you need. The information you used all of this beautiful mental architecture and imagery to help you remember in the first place.

Then you need to make sure that imagery is big, bright, bold and bursting with vibrant color. You really want the images to pop into your awareness as you journey through your mind.

If you struggle with mental imagery that grabs your attention, give these visualization exercises a try.

Never forget: they call it the art of memory for a reason (ars memorativa). You’re literally “crafting” memories when you use mnemonics.

And you get to create the rules of play, meaning that you can memorize as much information as you want for as long as you want to hold it in accessible memory. You just need to know – not just what to do – but what mistakes to avoid.

I hope this episode of the podcast helps! 🙂
