Recently, my friend gave me Atomic Habits by James Clear.
James Clear is such a good writer. At this point in my life, I observed that I am having trouble reading more and more.
This is definitely not a good situation because a key part of my work… involves reading and processing what I learn.
One of the key lessons from James that stuck with me, may not be found in the book.
There is a season for taking in knowledge, and there is a season for turning that knowledge into productive things. If we spend the majority of our time taking in knowledge, we might not have the bandwidth to turn it into productive stuff.
James reminds us that while learning is important, we need to deliberately try and internalize what we learn more and more. We then practice or use what we know in the work that we do.
