1. New technology is expensive. Old technology is cheap.
A lesson from Gunpei Yokoi, one of Nintendo's top designers, I'll never forget.
2. You don't have to start again from scratch learning how to use new technology.
3. You spend less time looking for the best technology, and more time actually getting the most out of existing technology.
4. Albert Einstein said that we're only tapping into 20% of our brain's potential. It's the same thing for almost all our existing resources.
5. It helps you focus on progress, not perfection.
6. I know extremely successful long-time entrepreneurs who are using web technology that's 20 years old. And still making a killing income-wise. It works.
7. It trains your mental muscles not to get distracted with every new "upgrade" that comes out on the market.
8. As Warren Buffett often says... you want to focus on things that don't change. While there are always new technologies out there, the core principles remain the same. And you can tap into those same principles with old technology.
9. It makes life a lot simpler. So you have free time and energy to do other stuff you enjoy. Unless what you enjoy is testing out new stuff. In which case, please proceed.
10. It helps eliminate waste. Wasted dollars. Wasted time. And waste resources.
