Tell the doctor where it Hertz.
There’s something about doing things frequently that doesn’t help their cause. That thing isn’t guaranteed to happen, but it’s always there, lurking, preparing. If it ever strikes, boy you’ll know it. It’s that thing where doing something “too often” turns it boring, stressful, unsatisfying. It’s the bane of every “daily X” routine and slayer of motivation.
But why? Why does it happen? Surely if one has been doing something consistently for long enough, chances of failure drop and drop? Well, for a start, you’re always going to have bad days. Days on which you won’t be able to get into your flow, days on which you just won’t feel like it. And sometimes you can just go and do your thing anyway, but sometimes it costs so much effort it’ll seem impossible.
And that’s in such strong contrast to what you’re used to experiencing, where everything goes smooth as butter, that the sudden change of pace alone is enough to drain away your powers. Because maybe you’ve just suddenly lost it, it was never this hard before. Maybe today is just impossible for you, maybe it just can’t be done right now.
That’s never the case though, and you need to remember that. Just take another step, keeping pace. It’ll feel good.
