I discovered a new term: PROCRASTI-LEARNING.
It's when you want to gain a new skill and then you look for resources to learn that skill. You purchase books, enroll in free and/or paid online courses, or attend trainings. You try to digest so much but resist applying them. You want to learn more with the intention of being good enough. To the point that you never really start.
I've been guilty of procrasti-learning more often than I'll ever admit. I've always wanted to improve my writing skills and I always read up on how to write, but never really got around to writing. That's why I have this newsletter, it forces me to form words and publish them to share with the world (or at least with you, dear reader).
Can you relate? If you do, can you reply to this message with what you've been procrasti-learning on?
Here’s your 20 minutes worth of learnings for this weekend! I hope you find them worth investing your time:
🏠Coronavirus: an architect on how the pandemic could change our homes forever | Tara Hipwood | 🕰 4 minutes
If your perception of home from a place of transition to and from work or school and spending time with family into a place where you do everything, you're not alone!
🎨The Daily Routines of Famous Creative People | Podio | 🕰 2 minutes
Curious about how creative people spend their time? Here's a pretty infographic for you! We've been often taught that copying a prescribed routine will lead us to success, but as you can see, they have different schedules!
📚The rise of the useless class (book excerpt) | Yuval Noah Harari | 🕰 7 minutes
The pandemic has caused this trend to hasten. But the realist/optimist in me sees that people are quick to adapt and pivot to the changing times. The question is, will formal education will?
See you next week!
