  1. Not only can you, but most likely you will have to. We live in a time when you have to run to stay where you are. If you think you can get an education once and relax for the rest of your life, then I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. What you did in your 20s may not be relevant in 10 years. Technologies, markets, and legislation are changing. Life expectancy and its active period is growing, which means that many people may simply get tired of doing the same thing. Many people move to another city or abroad – when moving, it is difficult to keep their profession unchanged. You have to either modify it or change it completely.�

    And about the brain-this is an excuse. When you really need to – then the brain works and the ability to speak languages appear, and the ear for music erupts.

  2. At 36, he left the woodworking machine for marketing.

    I will not say that it was more difficult to study than in my youth.

    So at least change a hundred and forty times – it's insanely interesting and healthy. Amen

  3. Quite possibly. But it depends on your field of activity. For example, if the postman becomes a courier, then this is not difficult. If the postman intends to become a programmer, it may be more difficult. You need to take into account: interests, abilities, as well as the availability of a profession in the labor market.
    Now about the brain. Yes, cognitive functions decrease with age, but not “by 30 strongly”. Intellectual peak in 40-55 years. And it is not necessary that a slight decline in cognitive abilities will lead to professional failure.

  4. A programmer needs to learn new technologies throughout his life. And learn them. This is the cost of the profession. If you stop,you'll be useless in a couple of years. So a programmer has to learn at 30, 40, 50, and, I believe, 60-70.

  5. Perhaps I can at least confirm with my own example that at the age of 34 I changed my main occupation (I went just to IT), although I never had any superpowers, but I had motivation and a goal. I know other similar examples even at the age of 45+, for example, a former teacher who became a successful lawyer, and later a lawyer closer to 50. I know a taxi driver who left for IT at the age of 40 and is now a leading developer of one of the companies. The brain does not lose its learning skills if learning is a permanent process.
