It's about momentum

It’s really about momentum. How many iterations can you stack up in a day? How many times can you go from idea to implementation and back to idea in a day? The faster you can do this, the more you can learn. The more you can learn, the better you can make your product. The better you can make your product, the more people will want to use it. The more people that use your product, the more you can learn. It’s a virtuous cycle.

With momentum, it’s harder to let life throw you off course. A single day of not working on your project can turn into a week, a month, a year. But if you can keep the momentum going, you can benefit from the compounding interest of your work.

The habits you form and the decisions you make become a force that drive decisive action and determine your values.
