For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to keep up with my side project, Suitless Pursuits. The crew requested a design refresh and on top of that, I wanted rewrite its backend. So I’ve been trying to keep up with this project by keeping to a principle: do one thing everyday. And the gif up there is a progress report of how it’s going so far (more on that later).
Apparently, this is a thing that Jerry Seinfeld (of all people) did to keep up with writing new jokes and coming up with a brand new material every year: he got a giant calendar and just put an x out on the day he wrote a joke. Eventually, he got a chain going and it felt good seeing that chain. Then all he had to do was to not break that chain.
I started doing it too
That’s a tiny calendar in the inside of my notebook. You’ll notice that there were a couple of days I missed doing a chain. It sucked.
