Conferences have interested me less and less over the last five years or so, and I just realized why. It’s because so much of it is inspirational instead of educational.
Inspiration is basically productivity porn. It’s entertaining and feels like you’re leaning, but it’s just another distraction. It’s the “busy work” of learning.
Stuff to keep you busy from doing what you really want to be doing.
You don’t need more inspiration. You need to do the work. Because doing things inspire us.
