In the post, site founder Drew talks about how "Comedian Jerry Seinfeld created a system where he held himself accountable for sitting down and writing every day. Jerry put a big yearly calendar on his wall where he could see it everyday. Then he would put a big red ‘X‘ across every day that he sat down and worked on his material."
According to Seinfeld, "After a few days, you’ll have a chain [of red X's]” and then if you just keep at it, the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing the chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job is to not break the chain.”
"After you have created a long enough chain, you’ll discover that you’ll do practically anything to keep going and not break the chain." Drew suggests that "The genius to Seinfeld's system is in the visual feedback of the calendar."
