Yeah it’s a meme. But it’s true. Verified by repeated first-hand experience.
- Exercise? Every time I stop, I revert.
- Reading? Every time I stop I become sad and lost again.
- Human interaction? Unless I keep at it, initiating a conversation becomes harder and I retreat from people and become lonely.
Start where you are. Don’t stop. If you stop, start. As the TMBA podcast said (quoting Rob Walling) make the hamster wheel into a flywheel.
