See as your resources just dey complete and encouraging. Imagine me saying "programming is fun
How long have you been coding pls and how did you get to the stage/level of coding 5hours......help a sis. I also get exhausted and loose interest at the long run. This definitely not funny
|Re: Working Long Hours by 1x2x3: 9:39pm On May 06|
Those effects isn't for everyone. Give a try and you will be amazed what you can accomplish.
|Re: Working Long Hours by ProfAmaben: 9:53pm On May 06|

Alright, fingers crossed, update me when it's ready.
|Re: Working Long Hours by yinkeys(m): 10:23pm On May 06|
Very hard to stay productive while working on your PC for hours without getting distracted. I know this. Self motivation, accountability & discipline *phew*. If you had buddies doing similar stuffs maybe you guys should always hold each other accountable. Some people are easily self motivated but others aren’t.
Drive/Passion should override it hopefully

Programming is a very different activity from video editing. Your advise is commendable but inapplicable. Programming involves high level mental data processing, holding extensive information in short term memory and processing several code pathways simultaneously. There’s a finite amount of time & energy the human brain can engage in such activity daily. For me, on a good day it’s 5 hours max. Not back to back. But split bw 2hr 30mins blocks separated by breaks. Anything longer and I’m just wasting my time. Other days, I don’t even get any work done. You can strive for a daily productive 2-3hrs. You would be amazed by the amount of progress you make if you are consistent.
As for op, check your work habits.
Do you study/code with an empty stomach?
- food helps keep you energized and focus.
Do you study/code at the end of the day or beginner?
- this matters a lot. The beginning of the day has less distractions in general. For the end of the day, your mind is tired and getting ready for bed.
Do you study/code with your phone or distracting websites by your side?
Constantly switching between coding and surfing weakens your ability to focus on getting work done. Eliminate all distractions, you would be surprised at your productivity.
And lastly, avoid drugs. In short term, you might be productive m. In the long term, you are bleeped

It’s seems your focus threshold is 2hrs. Mine is 2hrs30mins. And that’s quite normal. On average, the human man cannot focus on work for more than 3hours at a time. Here’s what you can do. Have two session - one in the morning and another in the evening. Bothe 2hrs, that’s a total of 4hrs. You should make good progress with that time.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:19pm On May 06|
Passion is very unreliable. Instead, focus on having a consistent schedule with no distraction. You'd be surprised how much progress you will make. If you wait for passion or inspiration, you would not get anything done.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:21pm On May 06|
Be careful. Your current work habit is unsustainable. You don't want to break down mentally. Na who dey alive dey enjoy life.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:23pm On May 06|
Nothing beats a quiet, serene environment. However, can you elaborate more? Do you code for 5hrs nonstop or do you take breaks? The devil is in the details.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:25pm On May 06|
This is an underrated and quite solid advice!!! I spoke about this on an earlier post. Consistency is key. You don't need 5 or 10hrs. If you can work consistently for 2-3hrs daily, you would be amazed by the level of progress you make.

The jobs that you have listed do not require any strenuous mental capacity. And as such, even though i understand you are exaggerating yet possible telling the truth, your examples hold no relevance here. Coding is a different beast entirely. It's one of the most mentally exhausting work you can do. It might not be physical but it's quite hard.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:31pm On May 06|
Bro, please change your perception. Luck is a result of healthy and positive affirmation and believe that positive events would come into your life. If you hold the believe that you are "anti-luck", you are in effect attracting unpleasant experiences into your life since you expect them to happen anyways. So, change your mindset. Believe you are lucky. Do things that increase your chances of success and you would be surprised at the outcome.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:32pm On May 06|
Will power is not enough. Have a plan. Draw out a study plan, allocate daily study hours and get the required resources to help you study.
if you wait for will power, you no go ever start.
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 11:34pm On May 06|
Pay attention to your surrounding. Do you have your phone with you when you are "studying"? Cell phones are major distractions. Additionally, check your diet. Studying with an empty stomach is a recipe for disaster.

Don't let any job take away your health. It's really not worth it. If you abuse your body right now cos you're young, the older you will pay the loan

DanjaNinja:Thank you so much. Can you please assist me with information on the best (or a very good) source of materials for data science and a guide to the best plan or course of action for someone that wants to be a data analyst?
|Re: Working Long Hours by DanjaNinja(m): 3:00am On May 07|
Google “Reddit learn data science”. Go through the results. You would always find me xcellent guides in reddit

Rafaela1:It has been a 2 years now. I developed Android application but not yet get to a professional stage. It just seriousness and dedication. Thank God I live in an area where their is 80% steady Electricity power. Programming without light and internet access is sometimes frustrating.
My resources are
If you really want to become a programmer you must have interest in it because the road to attain professional stage is rough and challenging.
Sometimes you write codes for hours it wouldn't work and you need to fix those buggs, sometimes you get bored and tired. sometimes it's fun when what you're doing is working fine and sometimes not.
I code in Kotlin.
|Re: Working Long Hours by Quietpain: 1:12pm On May 07|
DanjaNinja:Yes, it's 2hrs. I'll experiment with your suggestion. Thank you.
|Re: Working Long Hours by Quietpain: 1:17pm On May 07|
ModestGal:Don't say people are lazy because they can't work long hours like you do.
It's not by how long. I was studying two hours or thereabout and still scoring higher than people that went for 6-8 hours.
