Discussion on: How do you stay motivated to learn and progress?

My motivation to learn and progress in software engineering, starts with keeping a routine. I am currently going through the #100Devs program called "Learn with Leon" on Twitch where we are encouraged to use electronic "flashcards" (Anki) to remember concepts, use "spaced repetition" to continually review your flashcards daily and reinforce our learning, to code at least two hours daily if your schedule and family obligations allow it and learn how to ask for help when we are stuck either on Discord, Twitter or Stack Overflow.

On days where I am not motivated, this routine for me helps me remember my purpose which is getting back into the tech field and keeps me on track.
