Notes and Thoughts

The journey from raw thoughts to blogposts


Power law only works retrospectively

You can't tell people to learn the 20% that would help them reap the 80% benefits without understanding that the 20% is almost always unknowable until you have mastered the good chunk of the field in question.In fact, only the experts can guide the apprentice into the 20% zone and even that is not a very easy thing for an expert to do, for most people who are experts are not categorists who can easily analyse or bifurcate the meta learnings.

So yes, if you are exploring on , you will have to go through the grind.
