What is Tutorial Hell🔥?
Well this is a situation in which the learner always feels incompetent or scared to implement things out on their own and relies heavily on tutorials.
How does one land up in Tutorial Hell?🤔
There's no one answer to this, but usually this situation is common in beginners or people trying to master a new skill. At that point they need quick explanation and depend on video tutorials which is a good idea.But over consumption of tutorials leads to a form of dependency which becomes hard to overcome in future.
How do I know if I am in Tutorial Hell or not?😨
These are some of the situations that might be an indicator of the same -
- You find yourself busy watching video tutorials most of the time
- You think you will not be able to code without an instructor's guidance
- You keep course shopping or spend time on course websites thinking of getting that one course that might teach you the topic the best way possible
Looks like I am in hell, any idea how to move out of it?🏃
No issues. Firstly don't panic and get yourself a glass of water. Now showing you the way out of this place. Well there's only one way I know of which is - "start doing things on your own".You will make mistakes, and this might seem very hard at the beginning and even at later stages, but the key 🔑 is to never,ever give up.Am I saying you should never watch tutorials? Absolutely not! You should always go for tutorials whenever you feel like, but its just that the frequency should be lesser than what it was previously.
How I got myself out of the hell?
Like many of you budding developers out there, I was in the same place. Was finding it very hard to get out of the same. I was trying to learn front-end web development. Although I had previous knowledge of computer programming, still I faced lot of issues and fear in initial days. Gradually I made up my mind to take on projects on my own and started with the simplest of projects. This helped🎉.
If you are in the process of moving out of tutorial hell, you are basically trying to move out of your comfort zone which can be extremely hard. Make sure to not over stress yourself ,take ample rest, drink water, workout and rejuvenate yourself from time to time. This might help make the process a little easier.
P.S - This is my first ever blog.There are surely tons of things I missed and many places I went wrong. Do let me know in the comments.😄
