Interesting strategy swyx. For curiosity, why did you choose the Fibonacci sequence instead of another sequence, like arithmetic or geometric progression?

those are valid too! i just instinctively went for something with proportional scaling. Arithmetic scales too slowly. boring. Geometric is too dependent on starting factor. Fibonacci consistently scales ~1.618 (golden ratio) regardless of where you start.

Nice point of view, make a lot of sense the "consistently scales" argument.

You've influenced me a lot with your Learning in Public texts, thank you so much. I started writing and asking more in public because of it. Now, you encourage me to adopt the Fibonacci Goals too. I think these two become a great combination.

Please, share with us your goals and how they're going over the days.
