People tend to fear the unknown and fear the learning curve that can accompany change. This is especially true when it comes to technology, where the return on change may not be apparent for years.
While the status quo is comforting, it is a fleeting solution to any of life’s problems. You can achieve better results when you take responsibility for any forthcoming change and find constructive ways to deal with it.
I know of people who have severely out-dated computers and software, yet they refuse to make any progressive changes. People like this, fear they will never recover from the experience.
Nevertheless, time waits for no man. For example, Microsoft’s decision to stop supporting Windows XP (The most popular Operating System (OS) in history.) placed users in a dangerous situation where they will no longer have access to security updates unless they upgraded their system to a new OS.
The best thing you can do in these cases is to prepare yourself for any impending changes. With a little bit of research and forethought, you can head off any technological setbacks that may occur during any kind of upgrade.
