Hi Ron, I can relate to your what has worked/what has not worked so much! I'm also switching careers and I must admit at times I've felt so defeated, I've ended up taking long breaks because I convince myself I can't do it. I think that is partly because I was trying to learn too many things at once. Focusing on just one thing and creating a realistic schedule has helped so much.

Hey Gabby

I think the important point is never to give up and to know when to take a break. I definitely can relate. I think I’ve found a groove and a routine that works for me. I’ve even started yoga lol. Every now and again I start feeling overwhelmed and like there is no way in hell I’m getting this but then I have a break through on a particular problem and it gives me fuel to keep going. Don’t forget google is your fiend lol.

Good luck and keep coding!

Thanks Ron! I agree, it's all about us finding the way that works for us as individuals and knowing when to take a break and come back to something. Good luck to you too!
