How to Always Be Needed
I was recently using recording software and the designers made the digital features look like the old analog ones—with knobs and sliders. It made me feel relevant because I took what I knew and it allowed me to do it better with new technology.
It’s easy to feel left behind by the latest and greatest of everything. It’s always been this way—things change—but it happens sooner, faster, and more often now.
So how do we stay relevant in an ever-changing world?
Just keep up on the areas of change that most impact you and your career.
Partner with people in the know and exchange your experience for their know how.
Go the other way and find people who still prefer the old way and offer them your goods or services.
