You can teach an old (or young) dog new tricks.
You just have to make sure the proffered reward is big enough.
Part of our life-long quest is to become tricky dogs--people who want to learn and grow and experiment and invent
Tricky-dogs ask "do we have to do it this way?" Or "Why not, I have never tried it before." They are perpetually looking
for greater depth and breadth, more culture, more adventure.
Happiness becomes impeded by internalizing inane jabber such as "you can't teach old dogs new tricks." If the "old dog" wants happiness, contentment, joy, love and security then he or she will most certainly learn new tricks.
Growth comes about by internalizing a tricky dog mindset. It's wonderful to be around people who are on a quest to find opportunities and discoveries to enhance family and finances.
