13121: Do You Really Need The Latest And Greatest Version?

Hey there, hero!

Are you addicted to making changes to your tried and true processes? Are you constantly tinkering, adjusting and toying with stuff?

Or do you only change when you need to?

If the newest, latest stuff has your eye, even if what you have now is working fine for you, well…you’re not alone.

I see lots of performers searching for perfection…going for the newest mic, an updated computer, the latest operating system, the hot new mobile device…when what they are currently using is working just fine for them.

And then, there are others who only change when they see a need to, a real need, like security issues, not being able to run a crucial update because their gear is too old, or a feature that’s only available on a newer edition of a product.

And at the same time, your metrics might change – the standards by which you judge your success.


Where are you with this? Is change a struggle for you? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. David,
    Thanks for this episode. Once I learn something, I like to stick with it because I am more comfortable. I don’t mind learning something new but I am slower to adapt than most people. I have found with your help, Max and Victoria’s and Stuart’s, I can learn more without the shame of feeling like I am not smart enough. I love the fact that all the coaches and other pros are so willing to share their skills and expertise to help anyone who needs advice.
    I am of the mindset though, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
    Thanks again.

  2. I love the framing of “it’s a solution to a problem” — it’s so easy (for me, anyway) to get caught up in worrying about needing the “best” setup (and then worrying about how to define “best”, and what standards I should use to judge, and oh no what happens if I don’t buy the Ideal Thing). Thinking of tech as a solution — and then if I have solved the problem, then all is well and I can get back to work — is so freeing.
