Hi guys. I’m a self employed contractor and I wonder what things you do in order to stay up to date in this space and to learn new skills?
For me it all began when I was prohibited to listen to my favorite music at work ( I’m a Black and Death Metal fan and naturally my colleagues are not ). So I had to use my headphones in stead. That lead to me towards discovering audiobooks and courses. Since I usually work alone, for the past 7 years I listened to a few hundred books, learned Spanish, German and French ( aside from my Dutch and Russian ) and started to learn Mandarin.
Right now I have huge problems communicating with my work colleagues, since all the stuff I’m interested in, is not a topic of the daily conversations at work ( LOL ). As a side benefit of this strategy of audiobooks and courses I gravitated away from Television and mass media and I couldn’t be happier.
What kind of strategies do you use at work / at home in order to enrich your knowledge ( even if it’s not in the crypto space )? Thanks!
