  1. Some days are better than others. Some days I feel stuck and question my ability/capacity to learn Java. Other days, like today, I feel like I am making progress and feel good about my abilties. I work on daily problems from three differents sites and today I was able to solve one of the problems within a shorter time period. I had been in a rut the past couple of days working on one problem that was kicking my butt. So I put that one down for some other time and moved on. I'm glad I did because I was going crazy. I completed the new problem today and went back to the other one. Finally, I had to look up the answer (which I hate to do). However, I wasn't way off and I understood what was done which is key. So I am making progress but not as fast as I would like.

  2. I still need to narrow down the focus where I am learning specific lessons/tasks during a week or a day. I just need to tweak it a bit. Currently, I feel like I'm all over the place since the daily problems send me down a rabbit hole. This results in taking up most of my time and I feel like i leave out time for theoretical stuff.

The ability to put down things for later in order to be productive with current ones is a good one to have. Keep it up!

You can do it. I also spin my wheels on a problem and become overwhelmed. There are times I just walk away from the computer...do something else...then the solution comes to me. At other times, I just go to Stack Overflow or some other community and find that many others have the same question and there are people willing to help. There is nothing wrong with getting help.

#KeepLearningToCode Ron!

I know that feeling of getting stuck in a rut well. I don't always get out of it but doing what you did i.e. putting it down and move on something else, also has helped me. I also just stop altogether, go for walk and that too helps me.

Yeah, making progress but not as fast as you like -- I dunno, I keep telling myself that it might take a while but just need to keep the end goal in sight, because that is what's it about really.

Anyway sounds like you are making progress and that's great!
