It is easier to learn many things when you were younger, when you were still a novice, when you didn’t know much.
As you get older and get recognized for being an expert in your field, it takes more courage to open up for more learning. You now need to conquer your ego and acknowledge that there is still much to learn if you sincerely want to get better.
Accept the humility of being a novice because that’s the only way to keep growing.
You stop progressing when you stop learning.
