Hi Rahul, thanks a lot for sharing your experience! Happy for you to figure out a good path to gain a firm grasp on web development on your self-taught journeyπŸ‘. May I ask about the approximate number of hours you've spent during the 3-4 months of learning JS fundamentals? As I would very much like to check out the JavaScript course you've recommended.

Hi Sharon,

Sorry for my late reply.

I usually spent 3-4 hours per day. It was very hard for me because I do Full time job to feed my family. 😬

I stopped watching movies, shows, memes, going outside etc.

And I have to take break as well time to time, and come back with fresh mind.

Hi Rahul,

Thanks a lot!

I can emphasize with you. It does take a lot of self-discipline to study while having a full-time job. I spent 1-2 hours per day on weekdays to study and a little more hours on weekends.

I do need TV shows and some outdoor activities to relax (telling myself it's time for the diffuse mode of thinking). πŸ˜€

I should probably get more hardworking (like you). Your efforts will pay off! : )
