#5175345 Staying Motivated

Posted by Spyderzone on 21 August 2014 - 02:49 PM

I used to feel the same way you did until one I came across a quote:

 

"The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bull$#@% story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it"  -Jordan Belfort

 

I'm not saying the author of the quote should be your role model or anything but for some reason that really struck a chord with me so I printed it out and taped it below my monitor.  Every time I feel a little unmotivated my eyes drift automatically (now) to that quote and I quickly realign myself to task.

 

So not to put it rudely but I see a bull$#@% story you seem to be telling yourself and it looks like you are trying to tell us, maybe even trying convince us, to tell you, you don't have time, you should quit, or this might not be for you.  But I read your story, and see one not so different from mine, and I say what's really standing in your way?

In C++ you would probably use something like a vector with 6 elements.  Then just fill your vector with instances of the Pokemon object.

In C# you would do the same thing but I believe the proper container is the ArrayList.

I think this is a common problem and the best thing to do is slow down. I know probably not what you wanted to hear.

I'm not familiar with that book but I'm sure it's probably like most other language books. So what I'd recommend is as each new topic is introduced work through the sample code and problems no matter how trivial they seem. The primary reason being that you may be assuming that topic is easier than it is and when you start working with the code you quickly discover that there is a piece, maybe only one line that doesn't work like you thought. Through these trials and tribulations of working through the code your brain absorbs the information better allowing you to apply/recall it more easily.

#4913225 Need help with an excercise from Beginning C++ 2nd edition

First off let me say I have pretty basic knowledge of C++ and I'm pretty much a beginner in general, but my guess is if you want to do this what you need to do is have a way to escape the loop.

For example if your menu is

1 - Add Game
2 - Remove Game

You need to have something like:

9 - Quit

Then you can have your do loop do something like

do {
stuff;
}
while ( userAnswer != 9);
