A system that combines creating and learning

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.

Creating and learning are connected to each other in a way or in another.There is no creation without learning and hard working.And there is no useful learning if it doesn’t lead to creation and invention.

creativity is part of learning.

True. It’s just hard to keep doing both, and to keep learning while I am creating and especially creating while learning :)

Learning is a great thing.Knowledge is power as we know.To learn means to broaden your mind and open it.That leads to thinking and creating that’s it.

The key towards creating and inventing is of course learning and not any learning , learning by heart.

I agree. Learning is very important, I am just thinking about a way to create as part of my learning. And, that’s why I keep writing a lot, and that’s why I keep experimenting.

There is no limited learning and there is no limited creation.The more we learn the more we develop our way of thinking and creating.Creation is always the good way toward success .

I used to read a lot more than I do at the moment, and that’s mostly because I believe that I should have more focus on creating than on learning, action is a very important part of doing business.
