Zen and the Art of Making

1Book23

Zen and the Art of Making @ MAKE – by our very own Phil.

At some point, we all become experts at something. I really want to avoid being an expert in some things, only so I can continually look forward to learning more without the overhead of being an expert. Being an expert means your journey is somewhat over. I was going to call this column the “expert problem” but I hope you enjoy this semi stream of conscience collected over the last few weeks.

  1. The thing I love about science and engineering, and technology in general, is that while I’ve already learned a ton, and some people would consider me an expert in certain fields of electronics, I really don’t believe I will ever learn everything I’m passionate about. There’s always some new horizon.

    I do hope that continues the rest of my life. I will be very sad the day I feel I’ve learned everything I ever wanted to learn.
