If you had a time machine what is ONE thing you would tell yourself when you started coding?

I would probably tell myself to look up what imposter syndrome is so I can be relieved from all my doubts... Only discovered it was a real thing years into my career.

What about you? Iā€™m very curious to know!

I have a tendency to get frustrated at a lack of progress and I don't see the forest for the trees at times. I would tell myself to not give up, even if it was only 20 min a day of practice, it makes a difference. Something that sounds obvious, but not something I heard much a majority of my life.

Can relate. I have more fun working on my side projects than whatever projects I'm hired to do.

Very specific and sounds like something you really want to get done. Hopefully you'll manage to achieve this eventually if you haven't already :)
