What is Tutorial Purgatory? ๐Ÿค”

It is where you try to learn a skill by going from tutorial to tutorial, but then realize that hardly anything you have learnt has actually stuck with you. You really haven't learnt all that much.

Find 1-3 good tutorials and stick with it. ๐Ÿคจ

A few good ones are better than many ordinary ones. Close and remove others, it's time to let go of those tutorials.

No instructions, No problem ๐Ÿ˜

Step watching tutorials, abandon your comfort zone and build a project on your own, without all the instructions neatly laid out. You can seek help but try building something on your own.

Get comfortable being uncomfortable ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Tutorials are our safe zone. We cling into it a little too much, a little longer because we are scared that when errors and problems come up we wouldn't know what to do. Don't doubt yourself and take the leap.

Never stuck in this Tutorial Hell !!

DO NOT REPEAT THE MISTAKE THAT EVERYONE DOES

Here is why:

  • โŒYou will end up in learning nothing solid.

  • โŒYou will work so hard on learning those technologies but get ZERO results.

  • โŒYou will lose interest in learning.

Instead, try this :

  • โœ… Find UNIQUE and BETTER content by asking for suggestions.

  • โœ… Get out of your Comfort Zone and try building your own logic.

  • โœ… Try to learn something that EXCITES you!
