Is there a correlation between "do their job" and "learning the latest thing"? I've often heard that the best advice is to use the most boring/stable tools which tend not to be the latest and the greatest but which focus on getting the job done.

Which is fine at your current job. At your next job they're more likely than not going to be using the latest thing though so you'll need to learn it.
