I seem to have hit a brick wall when it comes to progressing in my life. I'm a persistent and determined person but somehow I can't seem to find enough motivation to keep up with new technologies. I'm a software developer and I should keep learning new stuff. I want to keep taking certifications, start making apps, learn new frameworks, but when I open the IDE the only thing I can do is create the project and then I freeze.
I just can't do anything else. I keep making up problems so I format my computer and stop myself from trying again, just basically lying to myself.
I want to stop this. As a software developer, if I can't keep up, I will be worthless in no time.
How do you overcome a productivity problem like this ?
