It’s easy to get discouraged especially with Covid killing opportunities. Personally; I am up to five jobs being closed due to Covid.
Get outside! Finish the “honeydo” list (if you have one). Learn something new.
I am currently working towards Azure certification, Python, Linux certification and re-acquainting myself with Powershell and leaning gethub.
Do re-read areas you know. It’s easy to forget things when you are not using them. I have even had instances were I would get a textbook question and I could see the console screen in my head and I could not remember the options.
Also, pick something new! Variety helps keep the mind fresh. It’s easy to get lazy on reading and training especially when you are job hunting.
I am cooking more. Going to do each recipe in one of Jet Tila’s books. He is a cool guy. Even answered a question I sent him!
I am also taking up Nordic Runes. Did the binge on the Vikings series and became a interested. We shall see how that goes. Wonder if their is a rune layout 😀
Do stay engaged and watch for depression sneaking in. Keep at it and eventually something will appear.
