Have you ever left a laptop or tablet for a few weeks, months or maybe even longer and then when you needed it, it had 17,000,000 updates to process so instead of using it, you babysat while it processed all those updates for days?
It kind of kills what you are going for doesn’t?
But it’s like everything…
Stop working out… the road back up is that much longer.
Stop doing little bits of coding… it’s a monumental task to learn more.
Stop eating right… shelving those bad habits are even harder.
Stop cleaning the basement… it becomes a disaster zone that simply needs to be purged.
Maintenance is the thing that nobody wants to do, but the thing that we all need to do more often then we think because the road back to where we were, isn’t days, it’s always longer, fraught with many more pitfalls.
