Here's an idea: Don't worry about programming, worry about negotiating better. I was obsessed with programming in my 20s and 30s and put in god-knows-how-many hours and all-niters and it never really got me anywhere. Nowadays I work about 40 hours, and I make a sh*t-ton more money. Oh, and full benefits. Also, I'm the best at what I do.

Intelligence in programming isn't the only kind.
