Career plateau

August 10th, 2007 at 02:41 pm

I'm in the information technology field, and have done fairly well with my choice of career. The problem is I'm in my 30's and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to keep my skills current.

Lots of reasons for this... I have a family now first of all. Obviously that takes up a fair share of time. Also technology is changing pretty fast these days. Since I'm busy with the daily grind at my job, I don't have a lot of time for training and learning of new things.

Maybe this is a temporary problem, I'm not sure. But I'm worried about my future career prospects. Anyone have thoughts on this... how to stay fresh, how to get past the career plateau?
