    Default why am i not enjoying programming?

    I am an unemployed software engineer. My problem if that I am not enjoying programming. I really want to be a successful programmer, it is my desire. But when I study for that, I don't enjoy it. I found it taking much effort and I leave it in between.

    Should I take up another career? When I start studying for another career I start thinking that my goal is to be a successful programmer so I again come to programming fold. This process continues and I end up doing nothing.

    What should I do??

    The question is: why do you "really want to be a successful programmer" if you don't enjoy programming?

    The real question is: why do you think strangers on the internet can give you better advice than your friends, your school, or yourself?

    I agree with KevinWorkman; this is a forum for questions about programming itself, not about life decisions.

    Going to give my amatuer psychology a go :D

    I believe the key to your question is this quote
    But when I study for that, I don't enjoy it. I found it taking much effort and I leave it in between.
    Maybe you find incremental chapter learning a chore and should concentrate on implementing projects where chapter learning and studying has a point of focus i.e. a specific thing you are trying to implement on your project at that time.
