That’s how it always was

No, it’s not. Things change and they are changing now at a faster rate than ever before. There is no doubt about this.

Then why people still use this, you might ask. It’s part of our resistance to change. It’s our fear that comes into play. Once you know how things are, how they work, you get used to them. You adapt and feel comfortable. Change, on the other hand, stresses you. You have to put in a little effort to learn the new things, you need to adjust to them and act accordingly.

Fearing chance is futile. It’s going to happen whether you like it or not. What you can do is to embrace it. Embrace it from the start, experiment, exercise and get used to this. This is how, while others will still try to adapt to it, you will already have the necessary knowledge to take advantage of it. This is what’s going to give you the edge you will need to succeed.

Be the one that others try to keep up with, not the other way around.

If I had to describe myself in one word it would be polymath; Renaissance man if I had two. I strongly believe that everything you know will come of use sooner or later and that constantly challenging yourself and continuous learning are the key to success.
