    Over the past 20 years MJF hair has gotten better with age and PT's not so much. Looks are everything in the tech world. BTW, my hair is a mess.

    I was never worried about losing my job because of a technology skills deficit. I'm always learning. I'm adaptable. I got a job with a company that encourages a growth mindset.

    But I don't like (have no interest in) Exchange, SharePoint, O/M 365, green eggs, and ham.

    This was really helpful and interesting. Great tips for overcoming perhaps some of the biggest obstacles in this field -- staying relevant no matter what you do. It's not easy, and I suspect we all falter at times unless you keep somewhat regimented which sounds like a great approach. Unfortunately for me, it comes in spurts. I'll go through a learning phase, and then a phase where life events sort of take over for a while. Aging in this field does have a tendency to wear one down and the appetite for doing it all over again becomes less and less each technical wave.
