  • Learn from Books and Experience – we need both learning and doing. A balance is required.
  • Concentrate on the task at hand – enjoy the present. This keeps coming every now and then.
  • Take feedback – proper constructive. It will show us room for growth.
  • Make mistakes – as it says it very fascinatingly: the more quicker we get comfortable in making mistakes, the more quicker we learn and develop expertise on a subject.
