I’ve read that it’s a good idea to keep the Apprentice pile below 100. I wasn’t really managing mine because I wasn’t having any problems keeping up, so about a month ago when I started to slack off on my morning reviews (did not expect to get so burned out), my Reviews very quickly snowballed! I’ve since been putting off new Lessons until I feel like I’ve caught back up.
Before I jump back into Lessons, what are some good rules of thumb for what to look for in the piles? I’ve been more intentional in smashing the leeches, which has been great, but I’d like to know what sorts of numbers are warning signs that snowballs are approaching or that I’m biting off more than I can chew.
Yeah as you’ve seen, it can snowball fast if you don’t do them.
I think a good rule is to not let any review pending before going to sleep, as it will fast accumulate.
You will need to tweak yourself what it means in numbers, as we all have a different comfort zone.
To give you some data, here are mine right now.
My apprentice swings between 80 and 150 (@level up + errors).
I have around 300 review every days, including 42 for new items (I do 21 lessons everyday).
You’ll have to see what works best for you. Apprentice count of about 100 is a good target though. That’s a reasonable soft limit. Hard limit of maybe like 150.
That’s really the most important one, the Apprentice count. It is the biggest contributor to workload. The rest I don’t worry about.
