Some practical tips:
- Consider using a computer for your reviews. I hate doing large batches of reviews on my phone, and will only do it if I absolutely can’t use my laptop. You may find that using a large screen and keyboard gives you less fatigue.
- It sounds like you’re doing reviews once per day? You should review at least twice, but ideally 3-4 times per day. Try reviewing in the morning (before work/class), evening (after work/class), and night (before bed). Squeeze in a session at lunch if you can. This will help you remember things better and make each session less tiring.
- 80% correct is good, if you average that you’ll make steady progress.
- Make sure you’re remembering the mnemonics, especially for new items. If you forget something, take time to re-learn the mnemonic.
- Get the ultimate timeline script so that your daily review count is not a surprise. There’s a system here, and once you understand it perhaps it won’t trigger your OCD.
Hopefully some of these tips will accelerate your progress, and the feeling of progress will help with your motivation!
