The start of something is amazing.
You’re learning all there is to know about a new thing.
You are making a ton of progress.
Then it slows, but you still keep going because it’s still fun.
Then the progress stops.
It’s been weeks and that PR from a few weeks ago feels heavier than ever.
That is when you must persist. You keep going. You keep working.
Maybe you switch up the time of day you’re writing. Or the notebook you’re drawing in.
But you keep at it.
You don’t quit.
I’m told plateau’s break at some point. You get through it and you keep getting better. I’m certainly not at the other end of that yet. But I will be, at some point.
For now I’ll just keep keeping on.
