Congrats on your first post!
I usually have around 100 reviews a day and keep everything spread out; no more than max 20 reviews in an hour if I can help it. I’m pretty much on WaniKani every hour or so so that’s how I can manage this.
This is tomorrow and a pretty slow day at that. Probably because I brought my apprentice count down to 40.
Rule of thumb: Keep your apprentice count under 100 items at all times! I’ve seen this suggested over and over and it’s made things so manageable.
When doing lessons, think about what you’ll be doing 4 hours and 12 hours from now. Maybe you do a lesson at 4 pm because you’ll be available at 8 pm, but what about 4 am? Are you normally busy on a certain day? Wherever your review ends up at the 12 h stage, it’ll stay there for all other stages. You can create a good rhythm by managing this!
Like I said, I only do max 20 reviews so if say one hour is scheduled for 30 reviews, I let the other 10 roll over into the next hour. Otherwise, all 30 will come back at the same hour they’re scheduled next. Let the +5 and other single digits roll over too unless you really feel like it.
I’m still figuring this out, so I’m by no means an expert, but I hope I’ve helped you gain some control! It will take a long time before your timeline starts to flow how you want it, but just keep at it.
