I39;m cooked (not at a high level of productivity) after 3-4 hours. Am I just not applying myself enough or is this normal? I can still read some programming articles/watch some coding videos, but I just want to see if I can optimize my 8 hours at work.
(Things are different by the way if I'm doing trivial stuff like things I've coded before, the CRUDiest of CRUDs, or if I'm doing something like learning a language or framework, like what I'm doing right now.)
I've done 8 hours in a day and even more, but the next days, my productivity suffers. Is this honestly just a mental thing? I'm willing to train my brain if I need to. Any tips?
