The ordinary discipline of showing up daily

A year or so back I had watched a Matt D’Avella video where he said, “start before you think you’re ready.” Starting my blogging journey on 8 September on a random Wednesday did not seem dramatic enough. But I had procrastinated enough. I had to start writing. Today is the fourth day since then. I’m glad I started.

The founder of Typesense, Kishore Nallan, wrote a blog post on July 14, 2021. It was titled, “The unreasonable effectiveness of just showing up everyday,” and spoke about how he created Typesense. He didn’t quit his day job to work exclusively on it. His one simple rule was “I shall write some code everyday before or after work.”

Reading that article is one of the things that pushed me to fix my own goal. Write a blog post every day (except Sundays). I still don’t understand what Typsense is (maybe someone could help me) but I do know that the simple discipline of showing up everyday is powerful. At least theoretically. This blog is an attempt to learn it experientially.
