Sometimes when I’m struggling in something I feel skilled in, I like to strip my mind back to the fundamentals.
As we gain expertise over time, it becomes easy to feel like the fundamentals have already been mastered. Nonetheless, getting to the next level can sometimes be as simple as reeducating yourself on basic topics.
It’s for the same reason that the process of teaching others can also help teach you, too. Education isn’t linear. It’s always ok to retrace your steps.
