- When in sky-high absorbency, you should try and take on the _really_tough_.
- When in “good” absorbency, you should take on the medium tough jobs.
Before goggles, swimmers compete by increasing the amount of practice, which was limited by the capacity of their eyes to endure the “abuse” — I call it “capacity”, and sometimes “absorbency”, as defined in two blogposts ##absorbency[def#2]worn_out by endeavors #coding and My absorbency[def#1
Myself as an illustration — Compared to my peers, I have superior Long-term absorbency/capacity for these *specific* challenges:
- best eg: jogging, but not stretching. I have much higher capacity to cope with jogging then stretching. I don’t really need to capture the motivation for jogging.
- I have higher capacity for push-up practice compared to chin-up practice.
- eating raw veg but not celery or raw carrot
- delaying meals but not reducing dinner
These long-term absorbency advantages are truly life-enhancing, to put it mildly…
— bigger eg: theoretical QQ study more than coding drill — major competition.
For many peers, when they find the fleeting motivation to study QQ, they should capture it. I don’t have to.
Ken Li said something like … If you enjoy tech and esp. dev work, then you have job security in tech sector till old age. I think he said that because there are so many tech jobs in U.S. not so demanding, where my absorbency advantage alone is more than sufficient to sustain a long career.
— bigger eg: java QQ more than c++ QQ
I have much easier learning journey on java. More satisfying, more Aha. I feel more in control, and less “lost”. I see more logical connections. The fundamental designs make more sense to me.
