I quit coding after I finish shipping a single feature for the day.

I quit writing after I lost the streak the 2nd time on #200wordsaday.

I quit working out after my ankle got twisted.

I quit logging into wip.chat after losing my streak.

I quit working on my old side-projects after I lost motivation.

And so many other things I quit doing after some time that I don't even remember now 😢

The reason is simple. I quit because it's easy to quit. The hard thing is to actually keep doing.

So today I start writing again on #200wordsaday with an intention of not quitting. Because if you wanna get better at writing, then you gotta write every day.

If you wanna get good at coding, then you gotta keep doing it every day.

If you wanna get good at shipping products, then you gotta keep shipping products as fast as possible.

The same principle applies with anything in life you want to achieve. Each day it adds up. And it eventually makes you better every day even if you don't realize it then.

This can also be proved in Simple Mathematics -

0.99 ^ 365 = 0.03

1.01 ^ 365 = 37.8

      @deadcoder0904 heheh ok ok don't take too many. Maybe regular consistent breaks are even better. Regulate energy flow so the sudden need for a break won't surprise you
