How to grow while you execute
I totally hear you about the trade offs of learning vs impact. That’s why I love journalism, because I learn while making an impact.

Good read. This article reminded me of people who are addicted to growth, those who feel a sense of monotony when they reach a certain level in their job and repeatedly change jobs. It seems that reaching a moderate level of proficiency doesn't take much time, but advancing to a professional level requires a significantly longer period, incomparable to the initial phase. Moreover, many people end up quitting because, even though they are gradually improving, they don't feel a sense of growth.
For such individuals, maintaining a presence in the same workplace while actively seeking new opportunities for growth seems like excellent advice for future progress.
