Now we see the struggle of FussyLizzard. These guys go deep and don't hesitate to take days off from work to stick to their schedule. If their gain is measured by their pain then they will become expert for sure!
If you compare that to me, who changes from scheme to scheme everytime things become inconvenient, then there is no justice done to their efforts when my name would be written in gold just by completing 7 circles of 1000 problems.
For people who think chesstraining is fun and who want a life next to the program we should apply different rules.
MDLM talks about 400 points in 400 days.
A typical program lasts 168 days.
So I suggest that eternal fame will come to me when my rating has risen by 168 points.
(I would be happy anyway)
What do you Knights think about this idea?
I made a schedule in Excel which applies a scientific approach to the intervals between repetitions. I don't think this system will become popular: to complete 7 circles will take you more than a year! (64 weeks to be exact) But you can do a lot of problems parallel.
If cognitive scientists are right, this is the best way to use our scarce human resources.
Well, we will see. I'm going to apply this on TCT step 5.
I'll keep you informed.
