Never Good Enough: Why Millennials Are Obsessed With Self-Improvement

Never Good Enough: Why Millennials Are Obsessed With Self-Improvement | Jordan's likes | Scoop.it

In 2015, 94% of millennials reported making personal improvement commitments (compared with 84% of Boomers and 81% of Gen Xers). And we’re willing to pay the price: While Boomers said they’d spend an average of $152 a month on self-improvement, millennials anticipated spending nearly twice that—though our average income is half as much. Our strategies range from new workout regimes and diet plans

to life coaching, therapy and apps designed to improve wellbeing.

 

This is why Boston-based consulting agency BrightHouse recently asked me: “Why are millennials so obsessed with ‘getting better’ or becoming ‘more exceptional’?”

 

It’s a pertinent question for companies seeking to reach Gen Y and cater to what we care about. Self-improvement is, after all, a $10 billion dollar per year business in the U.S. alone and one of the few industries that doesn’t plummet in the throws of recession. But it’s also relevant to millennials themselves, who anxiously wonder if they’ll ever be good enough.

Millennials may be perceived as narcissistic, lazy, entitled and fragile, but we’re more determined to improve ourselves than the generations calling us that.

Embrace Different Perspectives

 

"We'll never stop employing people of different generations here. Although it's a challenge to work together, meshing new ideas, different energy levels, and time-tested experience, I'm a firm believer that evolution only happens by getting outside the comfort zone. There's great value in the diversity of our employees. They provide insight on our wide range of customers, giving us a well-balanced perspective."

So whether you’re angling for a raise, a promotion or just a few kind words from your boss, here are a few common workplace mistakes you should quickly correct. Your employer will appreciate your newfound productivity, and so will you.

Are you making any of the 11 mistakes people regularly make at work?

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, June 22, 2014 10:15 PM

This is absolutely true! To learn to prioritize, know when to switch off and on according to circumstances and  work pressure makes good sense, and this is supported by the article that I have re-scooped! Not being able to prioritize and switch off might result in burn out and ineffectual performance at work!

The Limits of Friendship

The Limits of Friendship | Jordan's likes | Scoop.it
Robin Dunbar came up with his eponymous number almost by accident. The University of Oxford anthropologist and psychologist (then at University College London) was trying to solve the problem of why primates devote so much time and effort to grooming. In the process of figuring out the solution, he chanced upon a potentially far more intriguing application for his research. At the time, in the nineteen-eighties, the Machiavellian Intelligence Hypothesis (now known as the Social Brain Hypothesis) had just been introduced into anthropological and primatology discourse. It held that primates have large brains because they live in socially complex societies: the larger the group, the larger the brain. Thus, from the size of an animal’s neocortex, the frontal lobe in particular, you could theoretically predict the group size for that animal.

How Do Trustworthy Leaders Behave?

How Do Trustworthy Leaders Behave? | Jordan's likes | Scoop.it
It can be easy to trust too quickly, especially when a leader is affable, has an impressive résumé, and tells you what you want to hear. In 30 years of surveying senior executives, social psychologist Roderick Kramer has found that 8 out of 10 report being burned at least once because they trusted too much or put their faith in the wrong person at some point in their careers.

It’s important for an organization to build trust among workers for several reasons, says Kramer. Employees who know they can trust their leaders are happy workers who believe in what they are doing. Creating this trust from within can also lead to public trust. “A lot of leaders talk about public trust, then they focus on the impression-management side of things,” says Kramer, “it’s much more important to establish genuine trust within your organization, which leads to trustworthy performance, which then builds over time into a public reputation of being trustworthy.”

The Simple Question that leads to Perfect Work-Life Balance

The Simple Question that leads to Perfect Work-Life Balance | Jordan's likes | Scoop.it

Achieving work-life balance can look impossible. And, frankly, it seems like it's getting harder.

 

In the ten years from 1986 to 1996 work-life balance was mentioned in the media 32 times.

 

In 2007 alone it was mentioned 1674 times.
