    Programming what you want is fun, but as a job it can be painfully boring at times.

    Note:I made a few modifications to this thread bc I finally realized what I was complaining about. I'm not a morning person, lol.

    I have to get in this borning programing one day. I have an idea for an app.
    Every 10 years I have to change my occupation, otherwise I'm bored to death and burned out.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    No, programming in of itself isn't boring, just that many programming positions are. I like novelty.
    And it's amazing how people spend 30 plus years doing the same thing. I admire their capacity to withstand boredom. The nine to five job isn't for me.

    For me the key is: learning new skills, unleashing creativity, always progressing, being own boss (boss of me :)/organizing my own working day - or not working.

    One job I don't think I'd ever get bored with is being a gynecologist.

    Yes. I got you. Do realize that most of the funding in western societies is going towards quantum computing ...
    you might want to get a focus that tires you sufficiently. best luck

    You do very well with analytical thinking so programming should suit you. You should give some free online classes a try. Btw ignore those bogus quotes that say things like "I had no experience but after a year of udacity courses, I became a senior developer at Google." Lol.
