Am not sure why you are failing. Is it deadlines, pressure, the business
world, team work?

A related question: why are you no longer teaching?

I've been programming for many years, and in C/C++ for seven years.
I have a misleadingly impressive cv because I've changed posts as
successive employers discovered I was not really up to the job.
My salary rose accordingly (nearly 30K pounds sterling).

Now I'm devastated. My present firm tells me I don't have
sufficient depth of understanding of its software (after ten months
writing about it). I'm still not good enough with master docs (and
other black magic) in MS Word. (Some programmers cope better than I
do). I have an up-hill struggle with each new tool and the learning
curve is not levelling off very much.
