Discussion on: Why am I finding code challenges so damn hard?

Have you tried other websites that aren't hackerank? Check out for instance. Sometimes a change in environment helps us to overcome mental barriers :)

When I get stuck, I usually sketch out the problem on a notepad. Sometimes I'll write full code in pen!

Thanks, James. I will definitely try switching environments.

Notepads for sure makes a ton of difference.
