I really wish people would stop shutting down people who make their first step in the right direction for not immediately having made the second step too.

Please be kinder towards small steps. Any improvement is an improvement and even if it is not close to perfection yet it is worth celebrating.

Shutting people down because they haven't reached perfection yet just kills all motivation.


Yes, that's right. That applies to programming but also to everything else.
It's terrible that there are people who punish others.

@SylvieLorxu It reminds me of a thing Doctor Mike said: if he has a patient who went from no exercise at all to 4k steps a day, this is something to be _praised_, not criticized for not doing enough.
