I’ve gained insight from work.
You can read through dozens of documents, but this won’t replace you actually struggling through a problem yourself.
The struggling sucks, but you usually gain a lot from it.
Showing someone how to do something is much more effective than telling them.
People are afraid of the unknown and struggle to reason about it.
One of my teammates at work used to teach at universities.
She said that few students were capable of learning more than one major new concept per day.
There’s a limit on how much you can handle in a day.
If you learn or read about a cool concept, try to use it.
If it’s about programming, write a program that does whatever you found.
Even if the program sucks.
I use Obsidian to write notes.
The cool kids call this “Digital Gardening”.
