comment How to become a proactive rather than a reactive (lazy) learner?
but the areas in which i am a guru, i don't wanna do any more. so it is a dead end kind of situation. i am also kind of tired of looking and encountering the same thing all over, yet i am incapable of moving myself to independently acquire the knowledge needed to pass interviews cause i can't read a book to save my life. yet, i can do anything i lay my hands on, as long as i am given an opportunity to tinker with it.

comment How to become a proactive rather than a reactive (lazy) learner?
so IOW, i want to do something different from what i do now but when i tell them how much $$ i need, they say that at that kind of compensation they don't wanna be supporting somebody's learning curve, i.e. they want you to hit the ground running the 1st day. it's like that with every job i apply for. they all just ask for experience and ask very specific technology-related questions that only a guru can answer, someone who hasn't had a life other than doing that day and night. they don't ask intelligence-type brain teasers and overall high level understanding of concepts

because every job i apply for, they want previous experience, at least at my compensation level. i just can't afford to take any pay cut for a job that will also train me as i have a large mortgage payment.
