Do vs Learn?
To do, or to learn, that is the question.

A question that I struggled with for the longest time is trying to decide between when one is ready to start doing. I spoke with a friend and colleague of mine and he told me that like life, this decision is not just black and white. Whether you are learning or doing, you are also reinforcing the other activity.

The goal is not to let anything block you from progressing so if for example, something blocks you from progressing further in your work, you go back to learning to understand how to unblock it. This is a balance that one needs to be able to strike. Similar to Schrödinger’s cat, you are both ready enough and never ready enough so you might as well just start today.

To practice what I preach, I am going to take a different approach for my next project. I am going to try to and analyse ethereum transactions with what I currently know! Wish me luck 🤞!
