    been slacking off

    Been slacking off recently with programming, and just need a few words of encouragement or whatever you can think of for me to continue learning C++ as much as I used to ("used to" meaning before I started slacking off) =/.

    [Drill Sergeant]Stop being a wimp and start programming! Now, punk! Go program something, and it better be over 500 lines and finished in 3 days![/Drill Sergeant]

    i don't know why you would ask others to encourage you, wouldn't it seem kind of fake?

    it honestly just comes down to if you feel you should program more often. you have to want it for yourself.

    I would guess that he is looking for ways that others deal with such a matter it would seem.
    I personally have been so busy that programming is easy coming back to after well LIFE. lol
    Maybe you should try some yoga? Or allign code with Feng Shui. I don't now but my best guess is to try harder the harder it gets....

    You could be experiencing a "burn out"; if so, just stop and forget all about programming and stay totaly away for about a week, that should cure you.

    Try chaning your curriculum. After reaching near the end of my "straight" C++ book, I got burned out and was only programming for class. I just changed my learning and am now focusing on OpenGL and am now not burned out...just lazy, but still programming.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone . Going to first try Queatrix's suggestion, then will try something else if that doesn't work.

    Or force yourself into some other hobby besides anything computer related. Now that I remembered, that is what I did on a other subject. Yes it is very much like Queatrix idea but hey.
