A few weeks ago I just suddenly lost my motivation and stopped my reviews for a few weeks. They were hanging around in the back of my mind, but as the number grew and grew I kept putting it off and putting it off, until finally this week I decided I had to tackle them. I’ve put too much time and effort into this already to let it slide, but facing a mountain of reviews, I didn’t know how to approach them.
I started trying to tackle them in batches of 100. I got down to 1200, took a break until the top of the hour, and then got to 1100, and so on and so on. It took me about four days to get through with job and life commitments, but I just got the pile back to zero a few minutes ago.
My numbers were AWFUL. I now have almost 700 in my apprentice queue, and more than 500 reviews slated for tomorrow, so the uphill battle isn’t over, but I just can’t believe I got these back down to zero. Kids, don’t be like me. Don’t skip weeks.
