I failed #100DaysOfCode

  • Lack of a clear plan: There was no clear plan or a goal on my part I was doing this as I had some free time in my day. As my time got occupied with something of higher priority I stopped taking this challenge seriously. The next time there is a clear week by week plan then it becomes easier to execute the plan.
  • Vacation: I took a month's vacation in between and went home, this meant a lot of my time was spent chilling and worrying less about the challenge. I did the challenge the first 2–3 days in vacation but it seemed to me that I shouldn't be doing work especially when I am on vacation to relax and enjoy. So the next time it is important to find 100 days where there is very less disturbance and keep things in flow state.

What Next?

The next for me is to re begin the challenge again and this time craft it with better plan and timing. I feel that this time it will not be a let down for myself. I will keep a learning journal and convert them to a weekly blog post so that there is transparency among the community

What made me write the post?

The fact that I could have just started a new challenge didn't seem right to me. Transparency and acceptance of failure can keep us clean and honest. If I tell the world that I have failed once, this post is on the internet would make sure that I will not fail my next challenge in a similar fashion without any accountability.
