I have a friend in Manipal, who plays poker. Every time he loses money, he says I’ll play just one more time to recover everything. After that, I’ll bid adieu to this life. That one more time, is a recurring disease.

But, not if it plagues you in a positive way. Like, if you are writing a story, if you go for one more paragraph every time you think you’ve written enough, your productivity will rise. Sometimes in an attempt to write just one more paragraph, you might even cover two of them. (Just going with the flow).

In short, you need to get addicted to this shit. And not the shit that is actually addictive.
