I recently stumbled upon a cartoon which made that really visually - it is a bit harsh but pretty accurate.
So, let that sink in for a moment.
And then ask yourself a question:
Are you a leaf or this poor guy?
I believe change is inevitable in nature. It is unavoidable for us humans. In nature one either adapts or goes extinct. We, humans, either change and improve our life or we transform into a dumb couch sloth who’s incapable of fixing his or her own life.
However, such a change-resistance is so alien to me to the degree that I can’t even comprehend it. Why wouldn’t you want to change yourself for getting a better version of yourself? Why wouldn’t you learn new skills?
For me, it is the opposite. If you stop learning new skills, be it technical or personal development, you will go extinct; probably sooner than later. It doesn’t matter if you physically die or just your brain.
