    Lol. I feel like this is a routine. Somebody starts a journey thread being excited for trying a new method and they feel that need to share with us.

    Later, that excitement fades, and the person just abandons the journey in a couple days.

    Unfortunately, I'm one of them. I have 2 opened journeys, and none of them I even bothered to bring to page 3?

    And what's funny is that I believe every single abandoned journey is like that. Honestly, I haven't even managed to break the crust of the method. By this I mean that I haven't even managed to finish the initial set up.

    Shame on me.

    So what do you think?

    I think that is just how people are in general. Some people are motivated by 'accountability' while others will use talking about what they plan to do as a means of satisfying the urge to do it--basically removing your drive to follow through. You can see this effect play out really clearly in people who are dieting.

    I'm also guilty.

    I didn't stop with the journey I just got lazy and decided to not update you guys.

    These things happen.

    I know it's simple but one thing that might help is "pinning" the journey thread in your browser, or @Shaunm had a cool solution of setting up a keyboard shortcut to open his journey thread. That dude is a master at updating his journey thread.

    I don't even get the purpose of the journey threads, one of the reason I love working for myself is that I don't have to document my shit to others.

    You just need to find a source of motivation bro.

    What motivates you?

    The best option would be to move your house away from the cave. That's only for @pewep.

    And porn.

    How my old friend Tai said: "I don't care about materialistic things. I only care about knowledge".

    Most of the time I haven't even properly started. I feel like an attention whore for even starting a journey thread.
