Work on your skills and practice your art. Even the best experts need to practice and evolve with new ideas and perspectives. Don’t assume you know it all. Arrogance will limit your audience and eventually cause your craft to become obsolete. Make sure you’re reading, learning and educating yourself on the new techniques so you can make sure that you stay relevant and productive.
No one knows it all or has the corner market on everything. It would take an awfully big corner to do that. All things in life grow and evolve. Even if you’re considered to be an expert, even your knowledge can be expanded with new ideas or recent discoveries.
Make sure you haven’t become to arrogant to listen to those new ideas, no matter who they come from. Someone younger than you may not have all your knowledge or experience. But they may have a new perspective of looking at things that inspired a new way of doing something more easily or more effective.
We must challenge each other and push the edges of our box to expand our thoughts and understandings. Whither we agree or disagree, we always have the opportunity to learn and support each other.
Teachers always learn from their students. Even if what they learn is self-confidence or assuredness. But we can also learn by seeing things from a different angle and perspective. Looking at the same old stuff with fresh eyes.
Take time to listen to those around you who are learning. They haven’t picked up your bad habits. So they may be able to get through a process that you’ve always struggled through. You’re never to old to learn something new. So don’t let your skills and technique be threatened by new ideas. You maybe able to extend the life of your relevance and what you have to offer.
