# Thread: How to improve memory?

1. No he does cycles i dont.

I do CP and EP with a j perm.

and CO in place and EO in place.

2. I think my first blindsolve was around 10 minutes. It didn't take me long to get to sub-5. My goal now is to have more accurate and fast memo, my execution is OK for now. I can already see an improvement in it since I've started using letter pair images.

3. i have started blindfolded two weeks ago, and i did 15 minutes too on the first time i solved it
i'm really not an expert, but i don't think stories is the best way to memorise : i simply remember the stickers, and as they often do some kind of patterns, by group of two or three, i now manage to learn a cube in three minutes. i prefer this method because inventing stories needs imagination, to get to a sort of code, and then you have to decode again, which is so long. by remembering directly the stickers, you can execute directly whithout having to decode the story you remembered. As i've said i'm not an expert, but i have droped my memorisation time from 5 minutes to 1min30, and i solved the cube in 6 minutes (and i did about 50 atempts only yet).
good luck !

4. I get all dnf for the whole 3x3, I mess up mostly on edge memo, setup, cycle wrong way,etc. for corner only, one time last week in a boring class, I was practicing. I memorized in about 40 seconds, and finished in 2:30. During the middle of an algorithm, the teacher asked me a question and I answered him. That wasted about 30 seconds, but I was still able to finish the solve! I could not dare to go fast on algorithms BLD because I'm I afraid of messing them up. So I actually count out each move. Once I get past this and stop DNF on edges, I can expect a first successful solve of about 5 min, but that might be in months.

5. dont stick to just numbers and letters, remember as long as you remember it. play around with muscle memory, visual memory, number memory, letter memory, sound memory, ect, or combined. youll find a way
