That would be my current advice to anyone. We are never too old to learn.
Take my mother, for example. She learned how to use a computer with a Windows-based system when she was in her 50s. When she was in her late 70s, she got her first smartphone, an iPhone 6s. When she got the phone she quickly learned how to make and receive calls, set up her voicemail, and send and receive text messages–all of the essentials. She wanted a smartphone, she said, because she did not want to fall behind on the current technology. She has never stopped learning.
Neither have I. I may be good at editing, but I still have a lot to learn. Right now I am learning to edit on PDFs. I downloaded Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and a friend from one of my professional organizations sent me a couple of PDFs and instructed me over Zoom. This was only last week, so am I good at editing PDFs? Of course not. Or should I say…not yet. One has to do something poorly before one can do it well. Practice makes perfect.
In the recent past, I took some copyediting classes, not because I wasn’t already good at copyediting (I was and still am), but because I wanted to learn more and get even better. See? When you are good at something, you should keep learning about it so that you can become even better at it.
What are you learning right now?
