Do you get anxious playing "catch-up with all that knowledge?" It seems that if you're not attentive, you'll be left behind. But that's not true.
First principles don't change: they help interpet information. Day-to-day information, however, have a short shelf-life. Even if you miss them today, there's going to be different ones tomorrow. And tomorrow will make today's data obsolete anyway.
There isn't any tedious "catching up" to do. Day-to-day information merely helps with day-to-day actions. You can "pause" and "resume" any time you want, as long as you're good with first principles.
