Code fatigue - looking ahead


Some ideas for coping with lack of energy and inspiration for coding.

Let go of the need to do and learn everything amazingly all the time.

Remind myself to pick the projects and tasks that matter to me most.

Step away from the keyboard if I feel like I am anxious and losing a battle.

Balance is important. I must make time to talk to people, read books and go on walks.

I should also step back and figure out what I want to achieve and what it making me frustrated and why. Then I can make a decision which might be to take pressure off myself.

The bright side

Of course, 2020 has been a hard year for everyone. Yet despite that, I had many successes this year, which I cover in this post.

I have many years of learning and coding ahead of me. So I'll aim to be more patient with myself.
