A Perspective: On Off-Days

Am I allowed to take a break from a habit?

Perspective #1: It is fine. You can miss it on a day and it is acceptable.

Perspective #2: Show up every day!

Which perspective is right? The answer lies in tomorrow.

If your today’s break helps you come back re-energized tomorrow. Then it is good.

But if it makes it easier not to show up on another day. Then no. Don’t break the streak.

If the above piece made sense, then P#2 is correct.

If it didn’t, then consider it as a desperate attempt to extend a streak and understand that P#1 is more correct.

A Demain.
