Initially, I think it is fine to move through the cycle of topics fairly quickly until one develops more understanding.
Then, the pace (entirely up to the individual) slows and we might spend more time deepening our experience of each topic or particular topics.
My first year I probably cycled through my Lam rim meditations every 2-3 months. Now I take about a year to get through them all.
Everybody is different though.

I am at the beginning and was wondering, should one stay at the first stage until the visualizations come complete before moving on?
Please don't think I'm rushing to get to the next stage, I'm not.
I am just posting this question for opinions from the experienced members here.
