The Moment Every Developer Must Conquer

These are the most important posts I write.

I got this YouTube comment from Sir Joelsuf:

“I feel like I’m not learning enough and not doing enough. Its been pretty overwhelming. I wanted to replace a full time job with freelancing but its not working out. Working full time wasn’t either and I was getting nowhere and wasted 8 years of my life at a really bad job. I guess I’m at a crossroads.”

This happens to every developer.

Every developer I know anyway.

There’s that moment… when things aren’t going how you imagined. You’re starting to doubt if you’re cut out for this coding “thing”. You begin to wonder if you’re smart enough to actually do this.

That sick feeling stabbing you in your gut.

“I’ve put so much time and energy into this.”

“If I give up, it’ll be such a waste.”

“But, I’m not getting ANYWHERE! AAAAGH!”

And, the truth is…

That’s when you know you’re ready. Because, it’s not until you reach THIS point that you’re fully ready to put your ego aside, to forget everything you THINK you know, to stop trying to be “right” over everything else.

And, listen.

And, do.

And, be willing to try things you’ve previously written off.

And, work harder than you ever have before.

This is the moment when successful developers are made. And, they’re made by doing one single thing: KEEP MOVING FORWARD! Persist. If you can find a way to do that, this will be your turning point.

If not…

You’ll just be another failed wannabe developer.

So, make your choice.

And, if you decide to persist… I can help. I built my entire training curriculum for this moment. I purposefully put it on SkillShare, where I can give you the 2-month no-cost trial, to make it easy for you to say YES!

It is meant for this moment.

All you gotta do is say, “[email protected]# IT!”

And, GO for it!

I’ll be waiting.

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination.
