Reto, this is a GREAT article and is very inspiring for me, still very much learning the ropes of all the various API’s (and trying to do that on multiple platforms like web back-end, front-end, Android, and iOS — it gets dizzying to try to keep all that detail in your head).
There have been many times when my tearful frustration almost led to walking away. I’ve slowly gotten more tolerant of that and now see it for the SIGNAL it is: TIME TO GET UP. Take a walk around the block, listen to a song or two, etc. The key is to step away and NOT keep POUNDING away.
THANK YOU for the inspiration and keep writing!
