Hello everyone, and happy Friday! I am excited to participate here and progress on my coding journey.
Mindset. I have a healthier outlook now about the learning process, my own capabilities, and my expectations for results.
Consistency. My main issue has previously been sticking to it, especially over more than a month or two. If I try to expend a large amount of energy all at once, I run out of juice and give up. This time, I plan to spend a smaller, regular amount each day on it.
Social Support. I’ve realized that this forum can be an excellent way to keep in a positive and productive headspace while learning a tough new skill like coding. That is exactly what I need - people to talk to about it! I really liked what @ArielLeslie said here about considering others in the forum classmates.
(Hilariously, I seem to have switched accounts or deleted all my progress at FCC. I guess my post is titled more appropriately than I realized… Oh well! Should be even faster this time, and I was only part-way through the Basic CSS. Here we go!)
