Environment has a lot to do with how we pick up things. For example, Koreans are very advanced in information technology. I am sure receiving their primary school homework by e-mail 20 years ago had something to do with it. Around the same time, I had to book weeks in advance to have half an hour on the computer at my university. However, does this stop me? No. The only thing I see in myself is that I am learning selectively. I know I cannot catch up with the youngsters who were born with a laptop in their hand. However, I don't have to know everything. I learn the things that I need well and I can compete with anyone in that area.
