Why I can walk the Camino, but not learn to program

When it comes to walking, tennis and a few other things, I can apply the focus, concentration and motivation to achieve my goal. Then Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule is doable. While if I intend to learn to program, I spend no more than 1 hour behind my computer and then I have lost my motivation.

Will the difference lie in the interest you have in something? You are willing and able to do more if something interests you. I can walk for hours to practice for the 4Daagse or the Camino, but to program I can’t motivate myself to get behind the computer. It has nothing to do with computing, because figuring out for a trip I can get behind it for hours. So that 10,000 hours is only achievable if it is in your area of interest, I think.

Do you also have something that you cannot set yourself to do?

If you also want to walk the camino you could participate in this program.  In this program you learn everything you need to know to manage walking long distances.
