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.

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.

comment Is it possible to train to sleep less?
this is a terrible idea. your body needs a certain amount of sleep. i would say 8 hrs a day at least. it is preposterous to sacrifice your health for the sake of getting more things done.

what i meant is more like having a course of study free of fluff (most tech books are mostly fluff, IMO) that also has hands-on tutorial. also, most books IMO just focus on explaining concepts, which is great however it is hard for me to relate to a concept unless i instanly see how it is applied in real world. lastly, it is very important to have an actual, tangible product to be working on rather than having to come up with my own -- that is why on-the-job learning works well for me because i get to work on a product conceived by someone else, i.e. don't have to come up with ideas.

sleep is never a waste of time. if you were able to sleep another "1 to 3 hours", that means you needed it
