From our ability to multitask effortlessly to our openness around the world around us, there is something special about Generation Y. We've the character and the unique way of thinking that may change the world as you may know it, but that doesn't mean we know it all.
Along with all the perks in our generation also come the downsides. With clothes shrinking in size and selfies taking on additional time than service hours, you're ready to change the way Generation Y is perceived. Our generation should be remembered for that better, not the worse.
What our generation sees as skills that others don't have, other generations see as laziness. Multitasking is one of these so-called skills. We've we've got the technology and ability to do many things at one time. From hearing this news as we walk to class to checking emails on the morning commute, we need to remember to decelerate.
Unplug your headphones, take in the sounds who are around you, and learn to drink in everyday life. Every day life is constantly moving, but we've the opportunity to stop time whenever we decelerate and understand the world outside our iPhones and Facebook profiles. Listen many talk less and you'll realize that we can learn a lot from not only others but our surroundings as well.
But the work to improve our generation doesn't stop there. Keep in mind that there are no shortcuts to becoming an expert. Although we're the it's-all-about-who-you-know generation, spending so much time will invariably allow you to the top. Don't be afraid to experience the game, but know when to provide the pawns an escape.
It's simple to get caught up in other's successes. With regards to social networking, Generation Y seems to focus on comparing themselves to other people. This makes us easily discouraged when our accomplishments don't equal to another person's. Be relentlessly aggressive and hungry for experience.
Everyone's life path is different. Rather than measuring your middle with someone else's end, focus on your passion and don't let anything else obstruct. Trust yourself enough to understand that, by having an open mind along with a burning love for what you are doing, you'll reach your goals.
We spend between 12 to 22 years in school, however the learning doesn't hold on there. When you allow yourself to continually be learning, you open up another world of opportunities for yourself. There will always be topics and skills that you are proficient at, but when you discover the courage to test new things, you gain the ability to become not just good but efficient at what you do.
With time come new generations and new methods for thinking. There'll never be one right or wrong generation, but by listening to the recommendation of generations before us and sharing advice with our children and grandchildren, we are able to alter the method in which Generation Y lowers ever.
