Always be learning has been a constant thread in my life. I think anyone who goes into tech probably accepts that without moving forward one will be left behind. And yes – the pace appears to be accelerating.
I wrote this one some time back :: https://seedvc.blog/2017/07/30/always-be-apprenticing/
I still feel there are other ways to learn – one way is to apprentice. I am sure there are many others.
Someone at worked shared this read the other day :: https://medium.com/the-mission/why-being-great-is-so-much-harder-than-people-realize-c91616b18bc9
Wow. Eye opening to say the least.
This is telling:
The explosion of knowledge and the corresponding decay make one thing clear: we need to put a bigger priority on constant learning — as big an emphasis as we put on getting our optimal daily dose of nutrients, exercise, and sleep.
The whole article is a good read and will remind you to think about how to learn and to make time for learning. For me reading works but I find podcasts are pretty awesome too but I keep trying to figure out how I can learn a new craft or skill more regularly.
Brain exercise of sorts.
Have a nice weekend!
