Once the lockdown gets over, we might ask ourselves a single question…
“What productive thing we learned?”
If you haven’t still done anything yet, no need to worry. You can just start learning languages, not human languages, but computer ones- Java, C++, Python, etc. If you’re a technological enthusiast person then surely these languages are not a new name for you. These languages are the great pillars of coding and coding is the most powerful and essential skill to learn these days.
Coding is not about what you learn in days or weeks. Coding is really about thinking in a certain way. Coding does not require any skills such as whether you are good at typing, whether you are talented or not. It doesn’t matter. As you grow in this field, these skills come automatically.
Coding requires learning the programming languages, problem-solving skills, continuous practice, and a lot of other things as well. It is not limited here. In return, we also get many powerful qualities like patience, perspective, etc. These are the qualities that help in your life as well. Let’s know all the qualities in detail below:
1. Power of Patience
During coding, we get many obstacles. One of the major obstacles is the error in the code. But after we have practiced writing enough codes and learned to find out the errors, we develop a quality of patience to calm our minds and think sensibly because this is a critical factor in finding the fault.
When you are learning a new programming language or a skill, it takes time to learn it. Patience plays an important role here. Because nothing is complete in a day unless it is a simple task such as hammering a nail in a wall or going to buy something.
This quality helps us during coding and in real-life scenarios, as we will get many situations where we have to be patient. By being patient, we can solve many big challenges in our life. It is not easy to develop, but once developed, we can do or learn anything that requires patience.
2. Power of Perspective
Coding or solving questions helps you understand the world from a different perspective. While solving coding questions, many problems require a different perspective. With practice, you gain experience, and with experience, you gain perspective; it’s as simple as that.
When you are looking for a solution to a problem that you try to solve and at the same time you see the solution of another coder. Then, you think that each solution has its own way. Here, you are familiar with a different point of view. It actually helps to open a lot of gates in the brain. The perspective will help you in handling other problems, not just related to coding only.
3. Power of Logical Thinking
Coding helps strengthen your thinking capability as many difficult questions need healthy thinking to crack it. You also need logical thinking. Before solving a problem, you have to identify the logic used to solve the question and find out the different logical ways, and coding helps you put your brain in that situation. But the question is…
How can we develop logical ability in coding?
You do not need to develop logic; it will develop in your mind when you are solving a lot of questions. The first thing you need is to understand the problem and then using your creative coder mind to start thinking of its solution.
4. Power of Innovative and Creative Thinking
One best quality you can learn is the power to be innovative or unique. By gaining experience, you start to become creative as we can find out easy and short answers to the same problem that can save a lot of time. In today’s world, time is money. Being innovative is a boon in real life as they stand out apart from others.
Coding makes you a creative person. When you’re writing the code for a problem you try many approaches, you get help from other developers written code and you write the best solution taking the inspiration and help from other developers’ code. This is all about creativity in coding.
Creative thinking is how flexible and imaginative you’re in solving a problem. How creative you think to solve a problem in coding, what things are needed to separate the important point from the trivial.
In coding, you have also created some personal projects that demonstrate your coding skills. With creativity in coding, you can create new unique products that solve real-world problems, and yes, an innovation from you. Innovation means the practical application of creative ideas.
5. Power of Self-Learning
In coding, you face a lot of problems where you need help from other resources. To solve some difficult problems you need to get help from other resources, either by Google or books, etc. In a way, this helps you to analyze which problems need external help. This way, we learn new things, and we should try to learn from ourselves without taking other individual’s support. Coding helps you to achieve that.
This is one of the best powerful qualities that every coder has. It is a process of creating oneself. Because of this, many successful personalities never stop acquiring knowledge. With the help of self-learning, you can achieve anything in your life.
At the end of this topic, you all know that these powerful qualities come from coding and also know how these qualities help in the future.
So, why are you waiting? Set a goal to learn to code and start with learning programming language. Whether you are a technical person or a non-technical person, once you start your journey, you can fall in love with it.
