WHAT'S WORSE?

Being young and dumb and not knowing what to ask or who to ask OR old and stubborn and won't ask?

Placing yourself in a situation where you have to depend on either would be the worst, IMO.

Old and stubborn. Age should have given you enough wisdom to know better than the youngster.

I'm probably worst - young and dumb and old and stubborn

The latter in my opinion. It can be so hard to break habits. I've seen many painters that refuse to adopt new tech to their detriment. Myself included.

Oh I know it. That's me too. I'm 48 and the ones just getting started would call me an old man and the ones that has reached or about to retire might say the opposite.

That's what was going threw my mind when I asked the question. I'm thinking I might want to change the way I am doing things and Some have told me I need to change some things in our business but I don't know if I want to. Or would know how to. And be happy.

Kinda like the old dog and new tricks thing.

Yep. 49 here. That's why I'm both young and dumb and old and stubborn. It just depends on which generation you are asking.

At the ripe, young age of 61, I can say be open to new products and ideas.

But test them first before going all in. There is no "truth in advertising" anymore.

Can you say "paint+primer"?

If the whole truth and nothing but the truth was a requirement in advertising, it would be a much smarter and better world.

Might be a more honest world. I'm too old and cynical to believe it would be smarter and better.

Very interesting post!! The "old dog new tricks" is something in our trade that keeps us from excelling. We normally don't like change but in our business it seems you have to adapt to the different situations found on most evey job...
