Don't compare your chapter 1 to someone else's chapter 20.
I've been thinking about this a lot lately - as a kind of mantra. Because it's true. You shouldn't be comparing your new baby steps to someone else's leap ahead – they're only a leap ahead because they have been working at it for 10 years and you just started. But I find myself doing it all the time. Why?
I love reading – or should I say loved reading. I read all the time growing up especially in high school. But then I went to college and found out there's zero time for frivolous hobbies and I basically ran on coffee for 4 years and every time I picked up a book I just fell asleep.
Basically I completely lost my passion for reading.
