There is an endless stream of awesome things to learn. The search engine has brought us so much information. It's awesome....until it's not. Many of us have heard a similar variation of this phrase ,and some of us ,including myself, have also said this. Has anyone ever questioned if using this language harms us more than helps us? This industry is amazing because there is so much we can learn about and there are many problems to be solved with new tools. We have to stay focused though.
What can you do to fight this? What works for me is keeping a list of what I want to learn. I stick with that list. If I come across something that I want to learn, I put it in another list that I call a "parking lot." I am sure this might seem boring and mundane to some of you. This has been key to helping me advance my skills ,and sometimes the easiest lessons in life are the hardest to learn.
What are you learning about? Do you have any tips or tricks for how you stay focused?
