Photographic memory: How to reliably remember

Three general ways to handle human deficiencies: ignore them, give up, or try to find help.

One major deficiency I have is my ability to recall lessons I’ve learned or feelings I’ve experienced in the past. One way I get help for this, instead of ignoring the problem or giving up altogether, is to develop photographic memory.

I don’t mean I get really good at remembering things, although that’s a good idea too. What I mean here is that I literally photograph memories. I get out a camera and take pictures.

This way, I can look back over the photos I capture, and the images can help me recall the lessons I’ve learned and the experiences I’ve had. My camera might not capture the exact moments with all their wonderful nuances, but photos are a far more reliable way to remember than relying on memory alone.
