Change is Change

If you have to pick one thing to know about things, it’s that things change. 

I was an Electronics’ nerd in high school. I understood Ohm’s law and Conductance formulas. I knew logarithmic scales and I was adept at using a Slide Rule. The Slide Rule was obsolete by the time I entered college. And so was my interest in electronics.

The Slide Rule taught me more than formulas. It taught me that things never stay the same. It taught me to be curious and to try to be the reason for change, not its victim. 

More than anything, the demise of the Slide Rule taught me that change is neither good nor bad. It just is.

Unless you’re the Slide Rule.
