It seems the rumor that the older we get, the harder it is to acquire new skills was probably started by some young whippersnapper who had a thing against us “old timers” improving our lives. Old dogs can learn new tricks, so dust off that old tuba that’s been relegated to the outer depths of your attic. There’s still life in that old boy yet!
From The New Yorker:
Happy New Year, Pick a New Skill
