What I am trying to do is essentially this:

  1. First, a TODO item should pop up in my agenda after a one day (/week)
  2. Second, a TODO item should pop up in 2 days after that
  3. ... in 3 days after that...

and later according to the Fibonacci sequence.

    What's exponential about what you describe?

  • Well, the Fibonacci sequence does grow exponentially. Asymptotically, $F_n = O(\phi^n)$ where $\phi$ is the golden ratio ($\phi = 1.61...$). I don't think there is a way to specify that in Org mode, and why would you? In roughly 30 iterations, you'd be way beyond human lifetimes (and certainly way beyond computer lifetimes).

  • Actually, you might be able to use so-called diary sexps to do the calculation. See Timestamps in the Org manual and Sexp Diary Entries in the Emacs manual.

  • @nickD it's about developing a habit but not regular. Essentially, I want to have a calendar of revising old leetcode problems

  • @NickD I don't understand how it would help me to make it show up in the agenda.
