DON'T STOP LEARNING SOMETHING JUST WEEKS AFTER STARTING
This episode takes a deep dive into why exactly we should resist giving up after only a few weeks of learning something.
I often see beginners in the coding community getting frustrated that learning to program isn't 'sticking' as quickly as they'd like it to.
But the problem with thinking that we should give up after a finite amount of time is that we don't even consider staying with something for the ultimate long run.
Think about taking a flight across the world. When you get on the airplane, you buckle up and prepare ourselves for a long flight. We don't have any other choice than to sit back and be patient. We need to have the same mindset when we're learning to program.
Tune in to hear my three main tips for sticking with programming for the long haul until you find success with it (in whatever way that looks for you!)
