Patrick Rhone reminds us that we don’t always have to upgrade our tools immediately — sometimes it’s better to learn more about the software and devices that we already have rather than worry about upgrading to the latest version. And, sometimes the newset version just isn’t for you.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve spent less time worrying about what’s coming next and more time enjoying what I have now. I’m less concerned about spending another year with the iPhone 5s than I would have been in the past, my 2011 MacBook Air does everything that it needs to, and I can wait a few months before upgrading to Yosemite. And, that’s just fine. The updates will still be there when I’m ready for them and I’d be a much better person if I could always remember that.
