Ok we won’t deny it, if you ask anyone in the street about old people being able to learn new stuff, the answer is usually the same.
We all know older friends who don’t know how to use a smart phone or even send an email. And we usually attribute this issue to their age.
Yet, I truly feel most of them have difficulty learning new skills because they inconsciously decided or think it is too late for them not because of their age.
