Progress > Perfection
I have recorded 6 episodes of Podcasts till now, and I know deep inside me getting started and proceeding for a while is a bit easy but maintaining the chain for few 100 days is gonna be the challenge. It’s like two layered obstacles you gotta get through, funny how both the layers appear at the start of your challenge.
For me at first, getting started was a problem. But progressing forward consistency becomes an issue. You tend to develop hate towards creating every day at times, for instance, after writing for 50 + days it felt overwhelming for no reason. But yet showing up every day turned things into my way.
Talking about another layer, this is where things get intense and the chances of you breaking the chain is high.
Something really bothered me throughout this journey was, I thought getting started is hard but keeping the consistency is freaking hard too. I was keening on perfections for the first 40 days and almost all my blogs came out well. But after the 40th day, I ran out of ideas and my blogs started to become less intuitive and engaging.
But perfection isn’t my goal. Showing up is. I realized trusting the process and believing in daily progress is much important than perfection.
