Exploit or explore?

Exploit or explore?

Be it for creative work or for your career: It’s worth knowing the concept of exploitation vs. exploration. There’s a never-ending tension between making the most of what you already know, and exploring new ideas. Liked this quote: «Periods of exploration can be like winter farming; nothing is visibly growing, but a subterranean process is at work and will in time yield a bounty.»
