Don’t break the chain

You get many advices in life. From books, from people, from TV… Most are junk but there are some true jewels in all these mess. I am going to start posting some here that I actually follow:

Here’s one from Jerry Seinfeld:

Seinfeld explained his method for success: each January, he hangs a large year-at-a-glance calendar on his wall and, for every day he wrote new material, he had the exquisite pleasure that can only come from drawing a big red “X” over that day.

Drawing those Xs got to be pretty fun and rewarding, so he kept doing it. Eventually, he began to create a chain of red Xs.

The idea was to never break that chain.
