    Yes, I agree. It's patience for the availability and affordability I lack.

    Great post about staying current. No one enjoys learning new software or new ways of doing things, but I have found that embracing change and running with it is a good strategy. Often it is for the better. I like the comment about looking ahead at what might be needed in the future.

    One needs to be careful with the attitude expressed as you might find yourself retiring unexpectedly earlier than you thought. Fact is companies can be disrupted anytime and the company needs to be adapting and growing, even if you don't think it makes sense for you.

    Thank you Brandon. Your attitude is mine as well. I have been with a wonderful company for 20 years and am happy with my job. Even so , I went back to school and finished my degree in Consumer Science & Merchandising just five years ago. In addition to my "day job" I market and resell on my own website as well as other eCommerce platforms. Never stagnate, always learning, keep doing something new!
