comment how to keep focus in long term?
@dwwilson66: oh I'm not saying that development in Java can't be interesting at times! But that is caused by the problem and algorithm you select and not the language. If you treat Java as extended C with classes and garbage collection, i.e. you use only good subsets of Java and the problem is interesting, it can be quite fun. I used recursion in Java once to solve a somewhat hard problem and it was fun. But try mastering J2EE / EJB and use them productively...

You remind me of one guy really good at electronics and that's his passion - nevertheless, he works as sw tester. I don't have impression he's happy. At least my passion is software..

I would love to take up volunteer help but don't have enough time even for my family... (I thought about writing digital library sw, smth I'm familiar with, in Erlang, but can't find time even for that, even though I know libraries don't have good sw in this regard). I have a practical bent, actually: I am very ambitious towards good solutions, I want to make it better better and better (not: overengineered, more expensive, on the contrary - but BETTER). It's not perfectionism, though: it's entirely practical and I can make tradeoffs when necessary.

Well, swapnesh why python and not java is subject like an ocean. Do some googling on this (no irony meant, it's an interesting exercise, see e.g. what Norvig or Graham have to say on the subject). Daily goals - I have come to similar conclusion, although I still have problem following that. But it's small enough and sensible that maybe I will whip myself into forming such habit.

it's starting to come together: if I line up motivation about particular things and they relate to each other, maybe I can limit that to a few things and connect this into consistent whole so I can continue working on selected subjects only?

"Motivation introspection" trick - hmm I like this one, not sure if it works but maybe it will, I'm getting ideas how to make this work. Thanks! BTW if you're that smart - no irony intended - why you're working on SAP? ABAP sucks donkey's appendage (although I got that impression by browsing a few source code files, maybe I'm mistaken on this), but then again I'm fussy re programming langs, it does not have to be such a problem for other people. You could get some specialized skills that would make you very valuable, see "trends" on indeed dot com.
