Arthritis of The Mind is More Dangerous Than That of The Body

LDT – a component of the 9 triangles

I just turned 49 and am scared of being an old dog that can’t learn new tricks– stuck in my old ways…

Arthritis of the mind is more dangerous than arthritis of the body.

So I’m vigilant in asking myself…

“What am I avoiding?”

“What blind spots do I have?”

When I first learned about ChatGPT, I jumped in to use it and was cranking out content minutes later.

When I first learned about Descript, I jumped in to use it and was cranking out videos minutes later.

When I first learned about RankMath, I jumped in to use it and was cranking out articles minutes later.

See the pattern here?

Even an old dog like me, as long as I’m willing to learn new tricks, can build and use skills within minutes.

I’m surprised to find that young adults can have arthritis of the mind.

Being unwilling to learn new skills for all sorts of seemingly good reasons.

I could easily claim that I’m too busy, too important, that it’s someone else’s job, that I can’t keep up with accelerating technology.

Maybe I’m crippled by the #1 VA mistake– thinking that I’m “just a video editor” or whatever tool specialist, so I can comfortably ignore everything else.

If I don’t know what LDT (learn, do, teach) is or if I don’t respect it, I’ll be stuck in the same comfortable box, unable to grow or add value.

The mediocre performers are afraid to jump in to learn what our clients do and how they make money– their GCT.

Folks who are open-minded to learn and do the Dollar a Day program will discover many powerful tools.

Business owners can learn just enough to hold their people accountable.

Digital marketing specialists can learn what we teach for free– it’s all easily found on Google or by asking ChatGPT.

Then they can process all 6 stages of our Dollar a Day Program.

Technology is accelerating so fast– our ability to adapt quickly is necessary to survive.

Do you also have a fear of not being able to keep up?
