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.

Take a vacation and go do some wild game hunting.
 
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.

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.
Dammit why didn't I like school

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.

Build your own projects! I'm currently building a voice streaming app to help smaller teams better communicate. I have to work on side projects while having a job or I get bored.

You are making something like Discord or am I wrong?
 
So you can try to diversify your programming routine with a variety of projects. Take on more responsibility.

The process is really complicated. At times, this can sap your motivation and leave you feeling tired. However, it is important to remember that this is an inevitable part of the software development process. There are always obstacles along the way to creating something meaningful, and sometimes this can involve boring tasks. Many people cannot understand why programmers earn so much. It's simple, just look at how they work, it's not easy at all. For example, read about how to write software, use https://ddi-dev.com/blog/programmin...e-requirement-specification-for-your-project/ for this. You will understand everything immediately, although maybe not. You just need to take courses for 1 month, you will find out what hell is. I'm willing to bet that you just stop learning code; 70 percent of people do this.
Of course, this is a boring and monotonous process. You stupidly tinker with the code all the time, looking for errors or writing monotonous parts of the program. The only thing that somehow entertains is searching for problems, they are always different and need to be solved in some way.
