Great points, thanks; being productive is something I'm constantly fighting for: against youtube, HN, reddit, twitter... 😅

Whenever I'm feeling unproductive, I try to write down exactly what I'm feeling, and why my mind is trying to skip the work I have to do. It doesn't always work, but I often find that I'm able to get back on task after just writing down why I'm trying to sidetrack myself.

I also like your point about doing at least one productive thing everyday, and developing a habit out of that. Recently, I've been trying to produce at least one quick code tutorial everyday; and that's been working pretty well... but it's still a struggle!

Creating a code tutorial a day (no matter how quick) is a great challenge!! You have all my admiration.

It takes a lot of energy and determination to find an interesting topic and then code a practical example out of it!

Yeah, it's often a challenge 😅 But it keeps me learning all the time.

Example: my latest round has been all about React hooks; and I chose hooks, because I wanted to get better at them myself. And it's definitely worked: I can now say that I know hooks pretty well, and all because I had to force myself to learn them in order to teach them. It's a great "hack"!

That's great! I started learning React since a couple of weeks (currently I work with Angular). After some initial conflicts (aka JSX 😂) I started liking it's way of writing, very close to vanilla JS.
I will definitely read your posts about React, please keep writing!!
