I'm am writing this post while sitting in my black 2003 Tundra. I'm waiting to go to my next stop and thought I'd write between shoeing appointments. I just got kicked 20 minutes ago, the horse missed my knee and got my upper thigh.
I was instantly angry, but then after a few minutes I thought to myself, I should blame myself for picking this career and also be thankful for such a great motivator. I haven't been slacking off on learning/studying but that kick re-motivated me and put the fear of the Lord into me for learning RoR!
I love helping new people learning RoR and get emails that say: "How do you stay so motivated?" and such. Today I have found a full proof plan to energize and motivate anyone who would like to be more motivated to study and learn programming.
"Josh Kemp's Secret Technique To Learn RoR!"
Step 1: Make a goal of how many hours you would like to study each week.
Step 2: Shoot me an email with that number.
Step 3: I will email you at the end of the week and ask you how many hours you studied.
Step 4: If you missed your hourly study goal, you must come ride with me shoeing horses for a day
and I will make you trim one of my most dangerous horses.
Step 5: You will never miss your hourly study goals again :-)
I am now accepting applications to my free " Coding Accountability" program :-)
Seriously if you are lacking motivation to study/learn programming, tell someone your goal and keep yourself accountable to hit you hourly study goals, you will learn faster than you ever thought possible! - Josh
