Programming is essentially an exercise in concentration.
After several months learning this from the ground-up, I have come to 3 conclusions.
- The best solutions to problems are always simple and elegant.
- Attack problems with a clear mind. You can solve a problem in 5 minutes well rested, while 10 hours with a tired mind will yield nothing.
- Take a step back when you come to a road block. The solution you need requires you to take a different angle.
And that’s it.
