  • Catch up on flashcard review backlog

    I have >200 outstanding flashcards. Reviewing them all at once wouldn’t just hurt now, it would hurt forever as from time to time I’d see a similarly-sized spike of due flashcards. I’ll do 301 minutes2 of review daily to bring the count down.

    This is important as I want to review new flashcards soon after creating them. Creating a flashcard on Monday and first seeing it in review on the following Monday is a poor learning experience. I’m holding off on creating new flashcards until I get through the backlog.


  1. I selected 30 minutes since I think I’d be able to keep it up indefinitely. Some variation is okay but I don’t want to get to the point that I need to review cards for 1-2 hours daily. ↩︎

  2. Targeting a length of time for reviews, rather than a number of cards, aligns with Timeboxing↩︎
