I was so deep into work yesterday that I didn't even notice I hit my 100 post streak! Thought I'd spend some time reflecting on my time here so far. Here are some thoughts in no particular order.

Set an alarm

If any of you are breaking streaks without meaning to, set an alarm. I have an alarm set for 10pm everyday. If I've written already, I just end the alarm. If I haven't, I snooze it. I keep it snoozed until I've written.

I've broken my streak a few times before. I stopped breaking them after I set this alarm.

Two birds, one stone

During the week, I publish work-related stuff. I'm getting in the habit of writing while making a meaningful contribution to my startup. I use the "keep on writing" feature a lot so that I can have a full blog post written after several days. I've recently started answering Quora questions daily. 

On the weekends, I publish personal stuff. 

Community

I can't really tell how many people are reading my stuff but, those of you who do, know I appreciate it! I'm not here to get reads but some comments have been very insightful and helpful. It feels better than writing in a diary.

Onwards to another 100 days!

    @hum Congrats on the 100th Day! I'm curious about your Quora activity. I love reading Quora but never got started answering. How impactful do you think it is to market your startup?

      @basilesamel Yeah that's a good question, it's unclear so far. I think I'll have to do a lot more to start seeing some good impact. Maybe I'll write something about our results in the future.
