Ok, don't worry about it but keep poking at it. Dozens of companies worth trillions of dollars are desperately wishing you could code so there is a crazy amount of excellent programs offered for free etc.

Trades is also a great option, it's good for people who are hands on and like being their own boss. Takes a while to get there in tech or white collar.

However if you're looking at tech, you have a few technical career paths. Front end, back end, full stack, web dev. Etc.

You can even combine trades and tech and become a network engineer.

For immediate work, trades as an apprentice is your best bet. You need some technical foundation to get the entry level IT jobs. Which you can get from coursera. Check this out today!!!

I personally highly recommend https://www.udacity.com/

A tech career is kinda like being a race car driver, no one is going to want you when you're learning but give it a couple months and you can do amazing shit and make it look easy. It will take discipline and a constant drive to learn more and always expand your portfolio with more projects in new skills.

Trades is looking for a master craftsman. But they know you're an idiot who cant be trusted so they'll make you fetch wrenches and drive them around like a chauffeur. All good things come in time. After a few years you start your own business and have your wife manage it. Easy money. Can never be outsourced.

Whatever you do, do not get dejected. That's what our enemies want. Read history and understand that we can survive on potatoes and one outfit of clothing, but instead we decided to build spaceships once we escaped serfdom. Globalists want us back to being serfs, not me I say.

This sounds like much better advice. The demand is for great coders, and frankly for the vast bulk of people unless you have a real interest/inherent personality type you won't ever be a great coder, likely never even be a good one unless you're really into it.

I agree. It's super important not to force yourself to do something you don't actually like. My brother got a degree in Computer Science and he actually hates the work. He only did it because the money was good, and now he feels like it would take too long to go in any other direction.

I love coding, but it takes a certain mindset to want to do it.
