I'm experiencing a weird feeling, feeling of being unproductive and not having a will to continue working. I'm feeling overwhelmed and so i have decided to write daily to clear my head and see what are the patterns that i'm exhibiting.

A little bit of a backstory about me first to get things into perspective. I'm a Developer who graduated in 2018, with a job in the largest custodian bank of the world, only to find myself quitting it in just short of 6 months as i hated it. To tell you the truth i had no plans of what i'm gonna do after that, but i was certain i did not wanted to continue working in the same company. I was also very keen to build my own billion dollar startup. So i started on this hard journey as a bootstrapper building products that i thought were really cool. This gave me immense fulfilment and i learnt and progressed a ton while working at it. But none of them quite took of. I had a few people using them but that was it.

Fast forward to today, it is going to be 5 months since i left my job. I have taken up a remote job as a freelancer as i have realised that building a startup is hard and it takes time. I have also learnt that i need to pick up a valid problem not anything that sounds cool. While i have a job i still don't feel happy as i think this is just a sidekick and is just a way to put bread on the table.

There is a lot of uncertainty down this road and i need to be tougher to come out of the other side.

    @Johnson Congratulations on your first post. It is a bold move to quit your job, but it's good you found that something within the realm of entrepreneurship is what fires you up. Continue working harder on yourself than you do any job and you will find success. Welcome to the community!
