After like 5 years of programming, I've lost motivation. Any suggestions?

    I was writing question already about how can you lose it then I checked tags..
    Its because of php. You need to change that. Its a big step I know but its an important step. If you like backend go nodejs, net core, go... Anything

    @Kekica nodejs instead of php? You're joking...

    @sain2424 change your job or... maybe try something else, like silkworm breeding? 😉

    thats a sign you need to build a startup. dont listen to other people by learning new programming languages. if you just keep learning languages you will go nowhere and fall into depression of not achieving anything. believe me what i tell you before its too late.

    Learn a new language and all the benefits it comes with... Maybe try a system programming language

    5 months of ops should fix that.

    If you are losing motivation, it might be worth checking life goals and health habits? I thought I hated web development for a long time, but a lot of it was actually stress from life which bled over into my work, and stress from work bleeding over into my life.

    Motivation got a lot better with a bit of counselling.

    Code something simple and easy that you like.

    Games are good.

    Really old simple games that you can do in a day kinda thing.

    If you could program anything you wanted, what would you really want to create ?

    Learn a new skill, some algorithms, datastructures or a new paradigm like functional programming. For me it always brings out the need to apply my new skills on something :)

    You could distract yourself.

    Perhaps drawing a flow chart on someones back could work..

    @SukMikeHok I don't agree with you.
    I have been programming in PHP, JavaScript, Java, C#, (SQL) and am learning Rust now. Each of these has applications in which it is the most useful one (right tool for the job) or a necessary language.
    In addition, learning new languages, with new core paradigms, will broaden your perspective, enrich your skillset, and teach you better coding.
    Apart from that, just the joy of learning a new language can be worth it. Just discovering new things, being amazed by the features a language provides.

    In conclusion, I strongly argue for exploring a new language once in a while.

    Make sure your actions are in line with your goals.

    If you spent the next 10 years doing what you're doing, will you get any closer to achieving them? If not, change what you're doing.
