The other day I was talking to a friend about his professional bio. I wondered why he did not include his experience as a web designer in the bio. To me, designing effective websites requires genius and artistry.
He said, "It was too long ago. I'm a dinosaur."
I said, "You were in the vanguard of web design!"
You see, we can look at our past experience many different ways. But the way we express it is the way our audience experiences it.
Would you rather people think of you as a computer dinosaur or as someone in the vanguard of Internet experts? Neither is right or wrong. It's your choice how you present yourself.
