I can only learn so much in any one week. I have recently come to the conclusion that the best daily seder is just to learn WITHOUT any set yomi schedule. I have certain things I learn each day without fail, but HOW MUCH, I leave up to how much time I have.

I found that I was really burning out of Tanya because of the Chitas schedule. Once I switched to no schedule and went at my own pace, I enjoyed it much more...

So true.... sort of quality over quantity. I have just begun the 'Ethics of our Fathers' ....I think this might just take me a lifetime of contemplation.

My Mashgiach in E"Y use to say something similar:
It's not how many hours you learn, but how many minutes in each hour you spend learning.
