I’ve definitely been tempted by social media more than once – after all it’s only a new tab away. But last night (a sunday night), I’ve also resisted the temptation and coded for more than 2 hrs.
I was literally lost in problem-solving. I wanted to figure out the solution by myself so bad, I kept googling, staring at my codes, drawing out the logic …
It reminded me of my love for maths when I was in middle school. Just the pure joy of problem-solving.
Googling the answer might have been more efficient, but then that would’ve ruined the fun.
And after making more mistakes than I could have, I understood the right solution so much better.
Having a goal also helps – I want to finish “Basic Algorithm Scripting” by the end of May!
