Thanks for sharing this, Abhishek. I am not talking from a business perspective here, but last year, I felt like I was greatly missing out by not reading the ‘best’ stuff all the time.
I did extensive research on books, websites, magazines and newsletters. But I found that keeping up with even 1% of all that stuff meant spending 3–4 hours a day doing nothing else.
At the end I realised that I would much rather spend those hours experimenting and failing and using those failures to learn from. Because like you said, you can never get anywhere until you actually apply what you’ve learnt.
