If you are developing a project or a business, pay for services you need on an annual basis, not monthly.
- Seeing money getting ripped out of your bank account every 30 days hurts, especially if you haven’t gained traction yet. This risks triggering demotivation, drive and you giving up altogether.
- Knowing that you have committed to an annual subscription can be motivating, driving you forward to ensure you get the most value from your investment as possible.
Essentially, investment leads to commitment, and this leads to motivation and drive.
However, you need to know when to stop; if something isn’t working, adapt or stop and move onto something else.
