    Learning to think logically and in terms of proper software development methodologies is something I've spent the last 7 years learning and practising in school.

    So, no, it's impossible for us to simply tell you how to think logically and program logically. It takes a lot of practice and learning through simply trying stuff out and experimenting. For all of us, I imagine, when we started programming we didn't have any real secret formula--we just tried stuff out. The more you practice, the more you see "oh, it makes more sense (logically) if I write this function this way", etc. It's a snowball effect and you will keep learning new things the more you just try and do it.

    I agree. Except that thinking logically is probably the easiest to do, once you make a few "breakthroughs" of self discovery. You'll wonder why anyone would expend energy thinking "illogically" at all. I mean, what's the point? When logical thinking is ultimately more straight forward.

    I see beginner programs and often wonder: "why does this person insist on being convoluted? Can they even walk and breathe at the same time?". Yet many people, even in very technical but non-programming disciplines, couldn't think straight even though they are making 2x to 5x as much money. Especially managers.

    This honestly reminds me of a Dilbert comic:

    "Teach me how to be an engineer. I don't care if it takes all day."
