    The best way to become a better designer is do nothing? Perhaps meditation? Perhaps climbing a really big mountain and contemplating the mysteries of the universe? But definitely don't read about it, take tutorials, socialize with other (better) designers, or study it in any way, shape, or form. /s

      To bastardise my favourite quote:

      "Stop getting ready to [design], and start [designing]"

        I think the point is that good design (like everything) requires both preparation/learning and also action/doing. If you ignore the process of learning, your end product will, perhaps, be lesser than what it could have been. So, go to events, read blogs, read books, listen to podcasts, practice what you've learned, make mistakes, keep learning while doing. Learning allows you to DO more/better design.
