A quarter of the way through The 100 Day Project. Today's prompt asked about how you overcome possible excuses for not continuing the project. I'm immediately reminded of a post Austin Kleon's blog. It's all about focusing on the days. 

"Forget about months and forget about weeks. Focus on days. The day is the only unit of time that I can really get my head around. Seasons change, weeks are completely human-made, but the day has a rhythm. The sun goes up; the sun goes down. I can handle that." - Austin Kleon

There's also the story on Lifehacker about on how Jerry Seinfeld motivates himself to write everyday. He marks each day of writing with an x on the calendar.  

After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain. "Don't break the chain. "

So each day you do the 100 Day Project is another x. DON'T BREAK THE CHAIN.
