I was learning while partying, and here is what I've learned:
1. Taking breaks is just as important as working hard. I haven't had a day off since 1996 because I've been working incredibly hard for two decades. Now I think I deserve some time off to rejuvenate my body and soul.
2. We actually learn more while having fun. When education is combined with entertainment, a much bigger impact is created. We always remember the most humorous teacher at school and the fun textbook we read.
3. Doing more stuff creates a gateway to new opportunities. When we get stuck, one way to get out of it is to do more stuff, because stuff leads to stuff (Sorry for not writing it in a more elegant way). Just do stuff! Then we'll see new opportunities rock up. Yes, after having fun, I realised that I should recalibrate and adjust my goals.
