How to think like a programmer — lessons in problem solving

I've become a programmer in the last two years of hard-work and all I can say is this -

"Don't give up"

I've found that even the seemingly impossible problems have solutions if you just don't give up. It's almost like magic. Have experienced this over and over.

These days, whenever I face a complex programming challenge, I just stay at it. I'd search youTube, tutorials, programming forums trying to find clues - until something awesome happens or my brain just gets a new way to solve a problem. It's very hard to do, but end is always predictable.
Learn to strap in and not stop until the job is done. Anyone who has ever dabbled in coding knows that it is an exercise in patience. Learn to love the pain. Remember WHY you are doing something! Remind yourself that EVERYONE needs help. Keep in mind that having fun is key.
