Maybe You're Not Sick of Programming

Time and again, I encounter posts, people, who believe that they are sick of programming and can’t wait to retire to do something worthwhile (farming, traveling, for eg).

Or maybe, they just need a break and do something different. Even renowned artists, writers hit a block and must work hard to replenish their motivation.

Speaking from personal experience, the burnout stage can skew our perspective unfavorably. It can make us overlook programming’s immense potential for creative fulfillment and underestimate hurdles in other pursuits. Farming, for instance, while enjoyable for a few weeks, can be incredibly taxing (both mentally and physically) in the long run. Perhaps, it would serve anyone better to fix why they’re failing to realize the creative potential of programming vs. throwing it all away.
