Practise, Practise, and Practise. There is no end to practise.

Taking one day at a time, and I am penning the 125th post today, which means 125 days of commitment. This is just like that small drop in the big ocean.
On another note, I think Everybody Writes and The Atomic Habits, these two books should be read together!
