We have some top people on this NG and it would be interesting to find out
how much time they spend on an average week studying and working their
craft. I'd bet it would not be 40 but closer to 80 hours. So, forget about
mowing the lawn and doing other things for awhile and start studying and
designing electronics. Work for a company in R+D, not worrying about salary
only learning, change companies every two years and cultivate middle mangers
because they will be important to your future.
Then become a consultant.
