re: Avoid Burnout and Get Back to the Basics VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Ever feel overwhelmed by how much there is to learn? Is the pressure to learn Redux, CSS Grid, TypeScript, Go, Rust, Elixir, Kotlin or Elm getting you down?

I guess it depends. For me most burnout-inducing thing is getting bound to same boring things without any chance to try something new. As soon as I'm allowed to use new language, framework or introduce concepts I learned recently, my near-burned-out state goes away.

 

I definitely think there needs to be a balance. I didn’t mention it in the article, but recently I’ve been learning Swift in hobby projects which has helped me avoid stagnation and do something new. In tech culture though, there is a lot of pressure to learn even more which can get frustrating/overwhelming sometimes.

I think it is called „boreout“.
