One of my Finxter Python students, Davis, struggles with the following problem:
“I want to get way better at reading, understanding and editing code. Eventually, i want to move to data science and machine learning. I think you are doing enough I just need more focus and determination. I really want to be a Python specialist.” — Davis, Freelance Course Member
This is an excellent observation! Davis is 100% right: focus and determination is the #1 thing that separates the winners from the losers nowadays.
Most people cannot focus because the “grass seems always greener on the other side”. However, this is a huge mistake! You need to focus on coding to join the top 5% of coders who earn exponentially more money.
You can become a top 5% coder easily—just watch the following video:
If you follow the advice in the video, you have a huge unfair advantage against everyone else.
The more opportunities there are, the bigger will your unfair advantage become because everyone else is just opportunity hopping—ending up average in a few fields and below-average in everything else.
Decide on your coding niche today. Set the unreasonable goal to become the best! Read your goal aloud every morning and evening. And focus every day all day on your goal. Soon you’ll overtake all the weak players in the marketplace and crush it!
While working as a researcher in distributed systems, Dr. Christian Mayer found his love for teaching computer science students.
To help students reach higher levels of Python success, he founded the programming education website Finxter.com. He’s author of the popular programming book Python One-Liners (NoStarch 2020), coauthor of the Coffee Break Python series of self-published books, computer science enthusiast, freelancer, and owner of one of the top 10 largest Python blogs worldwide.
His passions are writing, reading, and coding. But his greatest passion is to serve aspiring coders through Finxter and help them to boost their skills. You can join his free email academy here.
