Discussion on: I'm loosing my enthusiasm to code.

What I (not nearly often enough) try to do is find something that gives me energy. Playing a musical instrument can work indeed, but running or going for a motorbike ride or trying to get epsxe to run also worked. And it could be that, sometimes, coding also works. Just find something that gives you energy and doesn't feel like a chore.

Just remember: after hours = you time. It's in your own best interest to recharge. And, frankly, it's also the company's best interest. If you spent so much time coding and learning that you resent the activity, you're less productive and more error-prone. If you are recharged and ready, you can write more and better code. So don't feel guilty!
