I’ve been pressuring myself to blaze through these courses as fast as possible which has made the learning process much more stressful than need be and made me dread every next lesson while not fully understanding the one before it. All of these attitudes have been purely detrimental to my progress. I’m doing myself a disservice with these habits and feel like I need to slow down, step back, take a deep breath, and start from the top while I’m still on the basics. I’m primarily making this thread to “solidify” it to myself, but also share my experience that other new learners like me may be having.
I want to thank @Gavrilow84 for their post in the above topic that made me consider this idea, as well as @miku86 for their contribution in this thread. I have definitely been gauging my progress by the “[number]/111” tracker on the curriculum page, prioritizing “doing something” over actually understanding it which is why I am where I’m at now.
Anyway just wanted to share that. If you’re stuck like I am don’t be afraid to take it from the top again. You’ll have an easier time going through the early lessons and be more mentally prepared for the advanced concepts later on. Good luck to you and I both.
