Tip 18: Concentrate on what is relevant

'The end of the journey isn’t knowing more, it’s doing more'. Julie Dirksen


It is amazing how many hours I already spent on learning things that I never came to use. This is because I am an intrinsically motivated learner - someone who loves learning for the sake of learning. 

Was it worth the time? Yes, in my case, because it made me feel good. In a world, though, in which knowledge is outdated in no time, it makes more sense to learn only what is immediately relevant to the task at hand (unless you are qualifying for a new job).
