I love getting my teeth into solving problems. Finding solutions is awesome.
But why reinvent the wheel if it’s already done? Why not stand on the shoulders of giants?
I could spend years forgetting to learn the lessons of history and make so many mistakes I don’t have time to make progress.
There will be enough problem solving applying knowledge to your own circumstances and discarding irrelevant advice without working everything out from first principles. And you’ve been doing that since the day you were born.
