I lost my streak.

Don't even know the number of days, because I stopped counting. It must have been 69 or 70 days streak.

I had my 200 words typed yesterday, I could not complete editing till I was unable to post.

Well. I am back here.

200 words a day is still on.

Sam Altman says "The days are long but the decades are short". Don't think I know what that means completely, but I guess it speaks to the fact that soon enough I will be on a long streak again (LOL).

Eighteen Twenty-five.

1825 is the target. 

So, as long as Baz keeps this site alive, 1825 days writing streak will happen.

Naval Ravikant says it takes ten years to become an expert in anything. Malcolm Gladwell says its ten thousand hours thereabouts. Either way, five years is a good shot.

My plan to become an author is a long game. I am in it for the long haul. My newsletter is growing. Got three new signups yesterday.

Gutted I lost my streak.

Here is to a fresh shot at the greatness of showing up daily.

Cheers.

    @seunoyebode - those who can come back after a streak are better for it.

      @brianball I agree 100%. Applies to virtually anything in life.

    @seunoyebode love your conviction for 1825! I read somewhere that if you shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. With a target like that, I'm sure you'll land among the stars too

    @seunoyebode

    I remember the first post I read of yours is you purring over your streak. I remember a sentence, something along the lines of you not intending to break your streak cause you like it so much.

    bacck then I thought you were robust. And then when you broke it and came back. And broke it and came back, I saw you as antifragile. haha. if you haven't read that book yet and you keep seeing me and Keni reference it, you should read it. I think you would find growth from it.

    @seunoyebode - Absolutely. We mourn together but that means the streak will be extra special when it arrives.

    Keep writing
