If Your SRSing Is Boring, Then You’re Doing It Wrong

If your SRSing is boring, then you’re doing it wrong. And there are three general classes of possible causes:

  • Card Content: The subject matter of your cards sucks — you’re not into it.
  • Card Structure: Your cards are too long (or, in some cases, too short).
    • Other than for learning elements of a writing system, one-word cards are bad.
    • Overlong, one-page cards are also bad.
    • Cards with more than one possible correct answer are also bad: ambiguity is good and important in life, but not in individual SRS cards.
    • Finally, drugs are bad, mmm kay?
  • Session Structure: Your SRS sessions are too long or spaced out too far apart.
