I remember the first time I read about Jerry Seinfeld’s productivity secret. At the time it seemed trivial, but after trying to write a blog post per day for the month of September using Gutenberg, and then failing miserably at it, I can admit to the fact that planning to write something every day and actually doing it, are two very different beasts.
Then I woke up this morning and saw that it has been decided that Gutenberg will no longer be using React. That’s a pretty big deal if you ask me. It also makes me realise that even one of the biggest open source projects in the world can make drastic changes to how it’s original goal was envisioned.
So instead of trying to blog every day I’m just going to try and blog more, maybe once a week, with a better ‘check’ against myself to ensure it gets done. With Gutenberg still a long way from being merged into core it’s on me and everyone else who makes a living from WordPress to ensure that when it is officially released, it’s awesome, not just good.
