Law of Diminishing Returns

20 cm x 15 cm (8" x 6") - Oil on Board

"Any rate of profit, production, benefits, etc., that beyond a certain point fails to increase proportionately with added investment, effort, or skill." Random House Kernerman Webster's College Dictionary
Whenever we learn something new, our progress is fastest right at the start. Thinking this through we should start something new every day and leave the old behind. The laws of our modern society are different. There you get all the benefit, or none, by being the fraction of a second faster or a touch smarter than your competitor. Where is your clue?
