Change is Inevitable – Fear Not!
Do you believe in the old adage: “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”?
If yes, you might be making it harder for yourself to evolve. Think about someone who refuses to get rid of their rotary phone or still walks around with a Walkman.
While these scenarios provide us with a giggle, it’s important to remember that being flexible and open to change is vital to your career and education. While some might wish they could still get by typing on a typewriter, sending faxes and consulting the Yellow Pages, these people would be left behind if they hadn’t opened their minds to evolution.
When it comes to one’s career, staying on trend and keeping up with advancements is not only smart, but also essential to maintaining employability.
Have you ever thought about upgrading your skills or sought to make improvements in areas where you struggle? It could mean the difference between staying where you are or moving up.
It’s never too late to learn something new… I like to remind myself by thinking of my grandma who uses Skype to video call me! If she’s up to the challenge of learning new technologies, why can’t we all be?
