Team Streak

Published on Jul 15, 2019

This is my reply to the multiple 200WAD / Team Streak posts. (Each word is a different link!)
I personally find it quite difficult to keep up with many communities. I'm just not active enough. I read the odd 200WAD post, but I could read more. The reason I'm part of the 200WAD community is mainly because of these few things;
  1. I saw what @basilesamel was building and it came at the right time for me. I wanted to improve my writing, and in particular, my communication skills. I do think I have improved, but maybe not a whole lot. That improvement has mostly come from keeping up this commitment
  2. As you all know, I'm a sucker for a good habit. Healthy habits lead to a healthy life and there is nothing like writing out your day, spreading your thoughts, your progress or simply getting things off your chest.
  3. The community has been brilliant. I'm not too active, but you've all been so nice me. From having a little bit of recognition for writing a post to a simple "Thanks for the updates" when I post about my day, especially you Brandon.
These positive comments aside, I do feel some negativity too. I particularly relate to @jacklyons' post, as I often find myself questioning quantity vs quality. It's an odd thought. Often, you can generate quality by amassing a quantity, but surely there is a line. When do we know we've hit it? Do we stop when we do? Am I slave to the streak? Will my motivation die if my streak is removed?
I'm not sure.
I think 200WAD is a net positive in my life. I'll continue to use it - and to support Baz and the gang. It's not perfect, but it's ours.
PS. @brandonwilson, count me in as part of #TeamStreak. Although I'm not vocal, I love reading these updates.
