Catching up on Tech

Today I want to talk a little bit about what I've been through, what I've seen, about a topic that is (and always had been) hot: keep ourselves updated with market technologies.

Currently (2019, July) I work for a company that has more than 3 decades, one that found its path and its market share. Some of his clients are more than ten years old.

In this context, keeping yourself updated as a professional, means to keep the company updated, and consequently, the clients. However, what did I realize is quite the opposite of what I always thought. At least for some customers.

In this whole time, not much has changed, and believe if you want, but the clients here feel safe with this stability, or stagnation may someone say.

So my point here is that are you sure that your clients really want to be at the top of the mountain? Or they had rather been safe, stable?

I know this question can be tendentious, and also have his exceptions by area and such. But in general, I started to believe that it was worth more to master a certain technology and stay in it until it became a bad thing. And because of that, as a professional, let some new tech things go away.

What do you think? Leave a comment!
