Study things that never change

The best kind of knowledge is not ephemeral junk , that will be useless in a few years, but the core pillars of human knowledge and the major academic disciplines. That knowledge changes very slowly over time  and it’s a core foundation that you can build upon and grow from.

Our acquired patterns and routines virtually confine us to our thinking to "the box", or more precisely, to a more left-hemisphere dominant style of handling information. But learning to tap into the more creative right hemisphere of the brain can generate new insights, enabling you to think in a unique manner about both the problems and opportunities.
