When one is so engulfed with tutorials that one forgets to implement their knowledge for actual results it is referred to as tutorial purgatory. In other words, to binge-watch tutorials without actually applying what one learned. This is prevalent in today’s internet-driven world more than ever. Now let’s look at some examples to understand it even better.

For example, a technology professional enrolled and watched “The Web Developer Online Workshop” on YouTube, consisting of 28 hours of videos covering all the topics such as HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript, and jQuery. Also, a sales professional watch videos on strong selling and communication skills or videos on how to provide services to potential customers. The course might be beneficial but it’s important to implement the learning.
