Everybody Struggles

It’s been five weeks since my Outreachy internship started and there have been many times when I got stuck and struggled with something for hours without making any progress. I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets stuck.

I won’t go into the technical details of the issues I got stuck with, but I would like to share some things that helped me get over the hump.

Take a Break

I’m a GitHub newbie and had always found Git very intimidating. Something as simple as creating a pull request would usually get on my nerves in the beginning. I created a new branch for my first Outreachy task. I used to commit and push every time I wanted to get my progress reviewed by the mentor. In the end, when I wanted to create a pull request, there were 14 commits. I wanted my PR to look clean by pushing a single commit rather than 14.

I spent a whole night trying to figure out how I could squash commits and numerous other things but ended up being really frustrated, making a pull request by pushing all the commits, and switching off my laptop.

After about an hour, a solution suddenly came to me that I wanted to try right away. I immediately switched on my laptop, made a new branch, pushed all my commits to that branch, opened a new pull request as a single commit, and closed my previous pull request.

There are times when all you need is to step away from what you’re doing and take a break. Give yourself and your mind some peace. Sometimes, you’re not giving your mind the space it needs to think and process.

Working without breaks for long periods leads to mental exhaustion and stress. Taking breaks recharges your mind, fills up your mental energy, and helps you to become more creative. According to research, “Aha moments” came more often to those who had taken breaks. Other findings also show that regular breaks raise the level of commitment, which in turn increases productivity.
