Ability to learn by helping others complete their tasks or project is probably the quickest way to learn about a subject. Most people refrain from helping others complete difficult tasks because they usually get nothing in return. Rather helping others complete difficult projects, most people think of starting and completing their own projects. But in reality, helping others complete their tasks or project makes you more knowledgeable about the subject, which will somehow connect in your future.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
