    Your daily dose on inspiration and motivation?


    I woke up today being discourage with my programming career(web development). I don't have formal training in programming, I only rely on the web for some tutorials. Thinking that I won't make a career out of it. It has been 2 days I would like to ask everyone here on what are your daily dose of inspiration? do you follow a blog to keep you inspired or motivated? can you share it? thanks!

    Think of flipping 'burgers the rest of your life.
    Functionality rules and clarity matters; if you can work a little elegance in there, you're stylin'.
    If you can't spell "u", "ur", and "ne1", why would I hire you? 300 baud modem? Forget I mentioned it.

    I get paid at the end of each month, that's all the motivation I need
    The No Ma'am commandments:

    1.) It is O.K. to call hooters 'knockers' and sometimes snack trays
    2.) It is wrong to be French
    3.) It is O.K. to put all bad people in a giant meat grinder
    4.) Lawyers, see rule 3
    5.) It is O.K. to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes
    6.) Everyone should car pool but me
    7.) Bring back the word 'stewardesses'
    8.) Synchronized swimming is not a sport
    9.) Mud wrestling is a sport

    Money is a good motivation. Do you get paid well? Do you even like what you do? Are you good at it? Do you get to save? Do you have fun in your life?

    Watch this to the end.

    I'm going to side with Cody on this one. You say "2 days." If that means you've been studying programming for 2 days, you should know it can take 4+ years to become skilled enough to make a decent career out of it. If you've been studying for longer but this is only your second day on the job, you should probably tough it out for at least a week and get to the actual work.
