Thanks Rian Schmidt for your insightful response. You bring a good point: we need to adopt a “change mindset” first, age is a multiplier. All our experiences and accumulated knowledge are worth nothing if we are not really committed to experiment, take risks and explore new possibilities.
Another of your thoughts I like is the “discernment for where to apply that energy”. Focus is critical to succeed in any field, regardless of age. But wisdom helps us develop our ability to focus.
Thanks again, your response. It looks more like a story rather than just a response. Maybe you should publish it as an article. If you could add some examples of previous/ current ventures, it could turn into a very inspirational story for others to read here at Medium
