I’ve done tons of therapy in my lifetime. I started in my thirties when my marriage was falling apart. Then 100 plus hours to meet requirements while I was going through therapy school. Then I had a full practice and started getting really busy. I mean lazy. Life happened. Basically lots of excuses.
Compounding interest on learning. You may have noticed in the graph above that the line representing startup rate-of-learning is exponential while that of a normal job is linear. While this is more conceptual than anything else, it illustrates an important point: if you reach a fast enough rate-0f-learning you start generating compounding interest on those learnings.
