One thing that, as I've gotten faster at picking up new things, has come in handy is the idea of "lazy" or "just-in-time" learning. I don't try to learn every new thing, I just try to be aware of what new things are coming down the pipeline and have a rudimentary understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. Then, when I need to use some new thing, I dive in and learn the relevant parts for the task at hand.

Ooooooh, I really like that.
