We also like to deal with experienced people when we have to trust them to complete a task. I am sure that you wouldn’t want to trust a builder with little experience. Phrases like “I’ve never done that before” don’t inspire confidence. In many situations experience does pay.
However is experience everything? Are their times that experience can be a disadvantage?
I want to write about this from running a business perspective. In today’s world change is inevitable and our experience in life can tell us that change can be good if we get it right. However you may have made changes in the past to your business that have not worked. As a result of past experience this can make us reticent to make changes now or in the future. In other words a person lacking such experience may do better because they have not had a bad experience. They will try new things and succeed because they did not think about failure based on past experiences.
If experience is making us cautious we could try a ‘test the situation’ method. Rather than diving into to something new we could give it resources to test to see if it works without risking our business. However whatever we do we must realise that we should not allow ‘experience’ to prevent us from making necessary changes to our business.
