Simple rule, hurry up slowly. Learning automation, software, tasks, etc. this process takes time. Treat it like a marathon
This point is an extension of the above point, it is good to have a plan on how to learn and what you want to achieve with this in the long run.

Upload your first „Hello World” and put it in your Github account. Then take the next small steps, with this technique, after a year, when you spend an hour a day, you will be on a really good level -> see how simple it is…
„I’m having no success in interviews, so I quit”
Be stubborn and keep trying to find your way. Sometimes it works and sometimes it fails.
In retrospect, it can be a great experience, if you receive feedback from Recruiters what they think about you and how much you are worth for them-> this is valuable information and it is only up to you what you do with it
