A system that combines creating and learning
Sometimes, like right now, I am having doubts about what the balance should be between creating and learning. How much should I create vs how much time should I keep developing myself and my business?
A few minutes ago, I was reading a book, The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, I discovered that I wasn’t thinking about what I was actually reading. I was thinking about what I should be creating, from what I was reading.
I was thinking about results.
I keep thinking more about creating than I am thinking about learning, and I am not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
On the other hand, I have come to realize that creating can also be a method of learning.
Right now, I am creating this blog post, and by creating it, I am learning a thing or two about myself. I am becoming a better writer, and I am learning that I am having a difficult time to read a book in one sitting. It doesn’t matter how good the book is, I can’t read more than a few chapters, before I start thinking about what I should be creating.
What I am trying to accomplish is to create a system that works, combining creating and learning, in a way that benefits my business. And, in the end, I will turn the system into a healthy habit for myself and for my business.
