cave9143yWell I don't stay focused either, but my experiences are rather productive and still funny. I was supposed to create a little mod in Java, I ended up writing a tool called "GradleIt!", which automates some tasks like versioning and copy to output directory and it has a music track, which should hype me everytime I create a new build.
The other time I was supposed to write a simple timer, now it has automatic upload and download feature, is completely customizable, can decrypt my self-made .ejs files (though I might change the file ending), can update itself.. oh yes, and the updater is completely customizable itself, so I can just use it for other projects as well.
Yeah, only problems with those two things are that I never do a actual progress on the projects, soooo... Might gonna change this behavior.
C0D4638823yStep 1) get the fuck off youtube
Step 2) work it out, or stick to textual answers only
Step 3) no cat videos stumbled upon.
i use browser in text mode with an extension, it helps
but anyway, when i reach the point to hate the project for some reason (stack, ppl, tasks or whatever) it's freakin hard to stay focused.
it shouldn't happen, but still...
Really? I usually start with googling for something like "how to use 'x'" (x being some Linux or BSD command that is not working for me in a script but often end up on topics like "build your own TCP stack from scratch" or "how to cross-compile x86_64 CentOS kernel for ARM"...
nzeetee4353ySorry, yes, the YouTube thing was a metaphor. I spend no time on YouTube... But I do start by trying to write the 'listCatalogues' function, end end up refactoring the ORM and setting up a new Dev Ops pipeline!
