How Old Is Too Old?
I woke up this morning, and this was in my inbox from Seth Godin.
For those of you who do not know Seth.
He is one of the top marketing gurus around today.
His books are great and are for anyone who wants to learn more about how brands work in today’s world.
Here is what Seth posted.
When did you get old?
At some point, most brands, organizations, countries and yes, people, start talking about themselves like they’re old.
“We can’t stretch in that direction,” or “Not bad for a 60 year old!” or “I’m just not going to be able to learn this new technology.” Even countries make decisions like this, often by default. Governments decide it’s just too late to change.
The incredible truth is this: it never happens at the same time for everyone. It’s not biologically ordained. It’s a choice. It’s possible to put out a hit record at 40, run a marathon at 60 and have your 80 year old non-profit change its business model. It’s not as easy as it used to be, but that’s why it’s worth doing.
How do this make you feel when it pertains to your life?
Some of you are real young but when I was 20 I remember people saying.
Not bad for someone who is 20:)
Enjoy your Sunday!
