An Important Skill Programmers Must Possess!

Today, I wanna talk about one of the most important skills you need to have to succeed as a programmer. I've talked about this before, but it's time for another blog post. Let's get stuck into that right now.



Let's talk about this number one most important skill you need as a programmer: Persistence.


I can't stress this enough. If you are not persistent, if you're not prepared to be persistent, you are not gonna succeed in your journey to become a programmer. I have seen people succeed purely because of persistence and I'll let you in on a little secret: I succeeded and became a programmer based on persistence. I literally decided I am not going to give up and that's what you need to do.


If you're struggling, if you've reached a point where you think you can't get this, it's too hard, you're frustrated, maybe you wanna throw your computer out the window, take a step back and think, "All I need to do to succeed is be persistent". The more you actually push through and be persistent, you're really increasing the odds of succeeding, and I can't really stress that enough.


I've seen tens of thousands of programmers over the years and every single of them was persistent. 100% of them were persistent so that's telling you something. That's really telling there that this stuff doesn't always come easy. You know, there are gonna be times where you're going to struggle. You're going to get to a point sometimes where you think, "I don't understand this" and wanna give up. Getting over that hurdle, getting over that line is the secret to becoming a programmer so I can't stress that enough and I've said that a few times now.


Be persistent, keep at it, and you're going to succeed in your journey as a programmer.


This is a really short blog post today but I wanna emphasize this and put this out there, so feel free to share this post to as many people as you can. Send them the link, anyone you think is struggling to become a programmer.


Being persistent is the way forward. I've seen so many people do that and there's no reason you can't succeed as a programmer as well. Be persistent.


You've made it to the end of this post! Thank you for reading! If you've got any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
