While attending a conference over the weekend, I was part of a conversation between a small number of people regarding the perspicacity of today’s “younger generation.” The culprit, according to a few, was the decay in our public education system, and the lack of desire of the average person. They used some of the “man on the street” skits on television where people are asked questions that we all “think” should be common knowledge, generally around history and politics.
Here’s what you need to do to seek out both significance and success. Avoid living in the past and be ever present. Learn from experience and apply the best of what you do to your life – both professionally and personally. Don’t allow yourself to get caught in a myopic mindset that demands that your generation, your family, and your country are impeccable and everyone else should do it your way. Instead, acknowledge that we live in a world that is constantly in flux and changing, and that you have the ability to help that change be a positive one for you and many others.
