Yesterday was a productive evening. I am at 59/381. I am just glad I am able to stick to learning. I need to make sure my weekends are super productive.
Watched a few more lectures. I am at 49/386. Long way to go. I will watch more during work today. I need a break for now.
I made dinner, and I watched training videos while I ate. I spent an hour doing this. I finished a few lectures. 47/386 lectures done. Of course watching itself is not going to cut it, I will have to actually practice. I figured, I will spend time during the week watching lectures, and I will practice for a solid 4-5 hours during the weekend. We shall see how that goes.
I also decided to give up (for now) my writing hobby. I have a problem where I cannot do too many things at once. I will put my focus on AWS. I will make it my hobby. I will still play video games, but no more writing reviews etc.
I will post more tomorrow.
Quick background - I am 39 years old, married, no kids (yet!). Working full time in tech (systems engineer), I am not a developer, but I know enough to read code, debug applications etc.
I am looking to get certified as a AWS Solutions Architect Associate. To that end, I purchased the following course -
My question is simply this -
Those will full time jobs, and a family, how are you able to focus on learning after work hours? I am simply too tired to sit in front of the computer after a full day at work. I am a PC gamer, and I don’t even play games on most weekdays, if that tells you anything. I am simply not able to focus. I don’t think there is anything physically wrong with me.
But those that study after work hours, what is your routine? Do you have an energy drink or something like that to get you going? Any advice is appreciated. I know this sounds like a silly question, but its rather important for me to figure out a way to study after work, and get this certification done.
