The really hard part is not to learn and figure out something new.
The really hard part is to adapt to new ways of doing things.
Ways that basically make the old way of doing things you just learned or figured out totally obsolete.
Ways that enable people to do things faster, better, smarter and cheaper.
Ways that might completely challenge your worldview.
What makes matters even worse is that today, the new thing you just learned has a life span of just a couple of years.
Or maybe even just a couple of months.
And the more you have to adapt and learn new ways of doing things, the harder it'll get.
The bigger your inner resistance gets.
So what can you do to get over that inner resistance?
Well, the first step is probably to realize and admit to yourself that things are changing.
To stop ignoring the facts.
And then the second step is about asking yourself what the consequences might be of that change.
And then you can either do something about it or not.
At the end of the day it's all about minimizing your risk.
The risk of becoming obsolete.
The risk of always having to depend on someone who can easily make or break you.
How you get there doesn't really matter.
As long as you realize what's going on and you keep minimizing and spreading your risk...
