What now?

I have finished a good number of Python courses and workshops. I've developed a large number of Python applications myself and worked with numerous libraries. I'm focusing on Python robotics with the Raspberry Pi (and GoPiGo) right now. However, I'm really not sure what to do now. I haven't even TOUCHED Treehouse for the last 25 days for some reason. I just don't know what to do next. All the Python courses seem boring and I likely don't want to do them.

I've been debating on whether or not I should go with front end web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) or maybe Java development (along with Spark web development). Maybe I should do more Django and Flask courses for Python or just continue my Swift adventures (which, frankly, I don't feel like doing). Try out some game development in Unity (with C#)? VR development? I really don't know.

All of these seem really interesting to me, but once I start them I have no motivation to continue. With Python, I did. With PHP and Swift/iOS, I didn't. I just don't feel like not completing another course again.

Interesting question. I'll be following up the answers!

I have found that I focus much better when I have an end goal (project) in mind. If I were you, I would try to think of something that you want to make and tailor your courses so that you get the tools to make that project. If you are into robotics right now, maybe you want to control your robot with your web browser? Maybe you want to make a home security system using the raspberry pi that you can access from the web? In which case I would pursue flask or django. That is just my 2 cents, it helps me a lot to stay focused on an end goal... even if I don't actually end up making it.
