It’s easy to feel like we are being left behind, especially if we aren’t in our twenties any longer. Our parents hardly saw half of the changes we have. Back then, to stay informed they read the morning newspaper, listened to the radio in their car, and watched the evening news–much the same as their parents did. Our kids can get the news from a zillion different places.
One way to remain relevant is to keep up with technology, training, and trends. Another is to use our experience to our advantage. Lastly, learn what the underlying rules are so that even when mediums and methods change (the how), the basics stay the same (the why). Back to the news as an example. A good news story still has a grabbing headline, leads with the best information, and is supported with a photo accompanied by a caption.
