We often trap ourselves in a cycle of constant learning. This cycle is seductive. It’s safe. It cushions our ego. But it’s a trap. Why? Because learning can be a form of procrastination.
Indeed, while we’re learning, we’re not doing. We’re not risking failure. We’re not stepping into the unknown. We’re not stretching ourselves. We’re not growing. We’re safe, but we’re stagnant.
But we can break free. How? By shifting our focus. From learning to doing.
Start doing. Dive into the real-world application. Get your hands dirty. Make mistakes. Learn from them. Keep going.
When you hit a wall, that’s when you learn. But only just enough to overcome the obstacle. Don’t make learning your permanent home. It’s merely a pit stop. A tool, not a destination.
Return to doing as soon as you can. Because in the end, it’s the doing that truly makes us grow. It’s the doing that takes us to places we’ve never been before. So break free. Stop learning, start doing.
