2. Create/draw an Illustrated Guide to some foundational industry topic
3. Understand that everything is a Remix.
Nothing is created completely originally. Copy, then tweak.

His question in our Discord: "How can I avoid writing down the notes verbatim?"
- limit to top 5 surprising learnings. let everything else go, as thats all you will remember. one sentence each as title, then explain in your own words.
- can also gamify by blasting thru a chapter within 30 mins, then coming up with 2 interview questions based on it, then move on. after a while, come back and answer those questions
Any other tips?
