  20. • Read as you can, or set aside time to read each day. • Use your current "professional reading" schedule and change the sources you read. • Try to read any source relative to its posting frequency. More frequent posts = more frequent reading. • Be careful of falling down rabbit holes of information and fun stuff – your time is precious. Don’t Try to Know Everything
  21. Learning a New Tool • Read about it online, then play with it • Read the screen • Push the buttons • Take your time • Don’t be afraid • Do the ‘driving’ yourself
