Even if it’s that chapter you finally finished yesterday, despite concerted efforts from a family member. If you finished it, that’s success.
Just don’t overdo it. A sugar-high can be an ugly thing.
Success is a journey, not a destination.
The doing is often more important than the outcome.
A book I like on success and ‘getting stuff done’: The One Thing by Gary Keller. [No, I don’t always heed the advice, but it serves to get me back to the essentials.]

Age-old wisdom from golfing instructors: “Keep your head down.”
It works with first drafts too.
Head down. Or at least away from the screen.
The misspelled ‘their’…the extra space at the end of a sentence…the ‘angle’ instead of ‘angel’? Fixable.
‘Drift’ in your draft? Not so fixable. Ditto that feeling you’ve been through a grinder after your daily 1000 words.
Remember: Head down. [You can sweat the ergonomics later.]
Typical victim of EAYD [Edit-As-You-Draft].
At least his head’s down…
