Things That Are Better With Age

When I think about working, there are a few things that get better with age. 

Insight: you have more of it and experience gives you better understanding of what gets thrown at you. It may even help you stay calm in the face of adversity that you couldn’t have faced years ago. 

Knowledge: it’s not uncommon to have learned a lot over time. You may have even become an expert on a particular topic, either through continuing education or on the job.  (I’m a big believer in on the job learning. Especially in the digital and technology space.)

Experience: let’s face it, if you have been at it for many years, you should be past the time in your life where people can question that you know what you’re doing.  Of course, stay secure and confident, because you will be questioned forever. 

Sleep: man, this shit is wonderful and precious as you get older. I could really use a nap. 

Ok, so sleep wasn’t a workplace item, but it impacts work, right? Right?
