“No matter how late you go to bed or how early you get up, sunset or sunrise takes natures course”
At this stage of development of the “clubs”, I would sit and contemplate the evolving events, so I can adjust course and make the necessary corrections.
I am aware that IT is becoming the “rudder” for the “pilot’s” ship but the “real world” will continue to be the “real world” with the exception that the means to convey services, products, etc. within it has become more specialized and sophisticated.
I sense that we are urged to find a balance between the “real world” and IT so we get a perfect match. Too much weight on IT and too little weight on the real world is causing confusion, distortion and despair.
I suggest that “our clubs” should be departmentalized and be open with more spaces for us, the common people from the real world, that are trying to learn and understand the “new way” of doing with our lives, ideas and expressions into this “modern” society.
I am a 66yr old “artisan carpenter”, happily married and grandfather of 3, that was born when there were no electronic calculators and no astronauts. Now, I design Post& Beam timber frames for homes and artisan furniture with AutoCAD, plus I am learning “internet marketing” and website design, for example our own “www.carpinteroporautografo.com”.
I don’t know what percentage of us “oldies” are on the verge of reinventing our selves but I would imagine that quite a few. Furthermore, it is not a question of “oldies” but rather a situation of “too” many people that don´t quite get IT. I am lucky that I am in my “new era” and often find younger people that hear me like I am nuts or too savvy. Actually and humbly, it is that I am using uncommon sense to develop common sense.
So, let us take nature’s course and let us not run too fast that would cause us to stumble.
