Feeling old? (3)

Hello all


I'm in my late 40's and lately, in the field of telecom, i've started to notice my age.  I don't understand things as fast as I use to, the 20 something in my group seem to know more than I do, they seem to be quicker learner than I.  All things I didn't use to have issues with because I've never felt that I knew less than other or could get things quicker.


In an attempt to get a pulse from the folks here and help me figure out what's happening, I'm wondering if you would mind answering a few questions.


Last question:  Have you considered/planned your exit from the IT field?


Thanks everyone.
