Helps further your mindset though, so there's that......
The point is that if you're not challenging your own ideas after a certain age then hardline, emotional views (such as racism) that were too deep set to deal with in the space of a few decades get preserved in amber for no reason and, if you have children, potentially passed on so that later generations still have to deal with something you were to stubborn to look at critically. It's especially dangerous since the 30s-50s is often the age range in which you will be molding the minds of your children.

But hey if you're satisfied with your intellectual growth at this point then I'm sure you're not part of the problem.

If you were talking about clothes or fashion I'd agree with you Chula. With only minor changes, I am stuck with the fashion sense that I acquired at about 25 yrs old. I wonder if that's happening with the rest of you, or are you all dressing like today's teenagers?

Just invoiced a customer for $80K plus. QuickBooks is so much better than NetSuite. So glad we made the change. Saved us over $10K a year.
