Well I did gain my motivation back I believe :slight_smile:. And I believe it is just a question of pulling throught the hard times. But you spoke some raw truth

takes notes

So thanks :slight_smile:

Hey Paul! You spoke some thruth too! :slight_smile: I have those places where I meet people but not for motivation for help. Try googling Kevin Powell and Caler Edwards discord communities :).
I am sure you will love it!

Thank you

I’m a little late to this but try not to feel guilty for burning out, sometimes it happens.

Imo the best thing you can do while you feel like this is to do anything code related that you might enjoy, and at least for 30 minutes a day. You’ll feel better about yourself and you might even get a project done.

I like the idea that “skills trump passion in the quest for work you love” and I recommend the book “so good they can’t ignore you” by Cal Newport

Hi, Thanks
I was thinking more local to me, I do use IRC. I was thinking for where I am having somewhere to meet up could be handy, so it is a social community of learners, we are not just stuck in front of screens.

Forums here are great anyway though or seem that way.

Just a case of reaching out to people.
Paul

I think its the part of learning. Sometimes you fell all right then continue but sometimes you ll be collapsed.
Remember when you tried to learn how to ride a bike. You’ll continue and then you learn. Coding the same. Somethimes we forget it.

I have been studying almost 1 year. I collapsed so many times but i never gave up. I may so slow but who cares? I might not good as someone. And who cares? I like problem solving and i think coding is the same.

I did my way you should do it too. Just ignore the environment, pressure etc and dont forget enjoying what you are doing otherwise why should you do, right?

You’ll do it. Believe yourself.

Ps: I learn riding a bike when i’m 31 :grin:

Hi Tech, with all that I can see I think that you learn and improve very very fast. Just keep up the good work! To be honest just last month I felt exactly what’s been described in your post, and right now I already got a Front end job, lol. Just don’t give up and you can make it!
