Earlier in the book I suggested that to begin with you could work your way through the Balancing Gong and Taiji Qigong sequences, learning several exercises a week, until you are familiar with all the movements. Once you are familiar with them, however, you may wish to pick and choose which exercises to include in each practice. You don't need to stick to the sequences or do the exercises in any particular order. You can simply practise the exercises you feel you need or the ones that appeal to you. You will probably find that the ones you like are the ones you need anyway! Each exercise can be repeated as you wish. The Chinese like to do things in multiples of six - so you could, for example, repeat an exercise six, twelve or twenty-four times.
