Learning Deep - Deepstash

Learning Deep

For most of what I’m trying to learn, I work to learn deeply. For years, that largely surrounded coding and development, but for the last decade or so it has largely shifted to business and marketing and that’s reflected in the number of posts I write about both of those subjects.

I’ve said before that in order to write more I need to read more, and that’s true, but the execution is essentially reversed. I read things that interest me which I desire to know more about, and that reading leads into subsequent posts about those topics.
