This is sound advice. Yes, stats can give us insight into our work and what is resonating. But, checking them multiple times a day doesn't really help much. It can get you excited or bring you down - but, the time spent checking stats could be spent writing part of an article. Or, finding an article to read and engage with ... there's a lot more to do on Medium than check your stats all day.
