Does anyone else get the feeling that they're reliant on tutorials for everything? Or just not retaining knowledge in general?
Sorry if it's rephrased in a silly way, but I meant reliant on tutorials that you cant really make a project by yourself, from scratch, practicing the knowledge that you learnt from the tutorial.
It's quite an "icky" feeling. Kind of like a catch 22? That feeling when you're a beginner, few months/years in and you've watched tutorials and learnt concepts, but when it comes to making something from scratch you kinda just, well....crumble.
Your mind is split between: Oh no! we didn't learn anything! And "But we so much time studying!" So you're ultimately left with low self esteem and feeling like you're going in circles, wasting time.
It feels like i'm not really retaining the knowledge, just copying. Is there a way to grow out of this stage, and if anyone's been there, do you have any advice?
Thanks for listening.
