“You’re unlikely to discover something new without a lot of practice on old stuff, but further, you should get a heck of a lot of fun out of working out funny relations and interesting things.”

What Does That Mean? 🤔

  • You're unlikely to discover something new without a lot of practice on old stuff.
  • If you want to create something new, you have to work yourself on all the pre-existing and pre-established stuff.

“It is important to doubt and that the doubt is not a fearful thing, but a thing of great value.”

RICHARD FEYNMAN
