|I've been coding for a living for about 15 years and, while there are plenty of days where I learn something new, overall, I'd say I'm actually pretty good at it, and generally quickly earn the respect of my peers wherever I work.|
The problem is, I've lost my spark and enthusiasm for the job, BUT, I can't afford NOT to work, and with 3 young kids, I have some pretty significant overheads to meet each month.
I still read HN and other tech sources avidly, so I still have enthusiasm for the industry, in fact, I dream one day of running my own successful tech business. I'm just finding the physical and mental act of programming for a living draining, having done it for several years, I'm in need of a change, and, if I don't change something, I fear I'll burn out.
So, turning to HN for some inspiration. What should I do?
