The Purposeful Age

The Purposeful Age | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it

HIn this new age a traditional business plan and brand strategy may no longer be enough, they are too easily pried apart and disrupted. In the ‘Purposeful Age’ companies and institution have the opportunity to join a meaningful conversation around things that matter, take their place in culture and demonstrate their responsibility to society.


What is driving the move to the ‘Purposeful Age’?


Disruption.


It is the concern of business; every sector is talking about it. When will the Uber or Airbnb of their sector arrive? When will a company be created that focuses on eliminating the inefficiencies in the existing business model of that sector? Will it be airlines, banking, insurance or the energy sector that will face disruption? Probably all....

Your generational identity is a lie

Your generational identity is a lie | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it
You are not Gen X. You are not a Millennial. Unless you are a Baby Boomer, you are nothing.
Madison Dixons insight:

"Generations are like "Whose Line is it Anyway?" The boundaries are made up and the labels don't matter"

What defines us as a generation? I say that we are defined by the events that occur, pop culture, technology, and who we are as people. Generations are obviously very different, but don't feel as though your generation labels you because you are your generation.

Millennials: The Multifaceted Generation

Millennials: The Multifaceted Generation | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it

"Let’s face it, finding your identity in an ever-changing, chaotic world is challenging. Millennials, those of us born between 1980 and 1995, are in many ways a product of this chaos. And yet, the current system doesn’t always allow for our fluid identities, forcing us to decide between extremes: Liberal or Conservative? Online or offline personality? Jeans or a suit? Book or an iPad? Corporate or a startup? As a result, many Millennials face an identity crisis today – we don’t fit into one particular box or carry one clear label. We are left with a multifaceted sense of identity that confuses employers, retailers, colleagues, and most of all, ourselves.

Growing up as digital natives, we have the ability to develop a new skill set overnight, allowing us to continuously reinvent ourselves."

Madison Dixons insight:

This article discusses how Millennials are a multifaceted generation and thrive off of the technology we are given. With so much available at our fingertips, we are a generation that is extremely versatile and willing to learn.

Millennials: The Money-Conscious Generation?

Millennials: The Money-Conscious Generation? | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it
The cohort of Americans born between the years 1981 and 1997 have been called a lot of names: Millennials. Generation Y. The Laziest Generation. Even the satirical (yet equally annoying) "Snake People" was en vogue for a hot second.
Madison Dixons insight:

We are a money conscious generation after we witnessed our parents being laid off or losing jobs even after working assiduously. Constantly being told our degrees are meaningless, but if we don't go to college we can't get a job. These are the comments that drive us to optimism and money saving. We dare to believe that we have power and our dreams can come true, no matter what the current statistics tell us.

Every Every Every Generation Has Been the Me Me Me Generation

Every Every Every Generation Has Been the Me Me Me Generation | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it
Millennials are the "ME ME ME GENERATION," writes Joel Stein for Time magazine's new cover story out today — which makes him only the latest culture writer in the last century or so to declare the youth self-obsessed little monsters.
Madison Dixons insight:

Maybe it isn't this generation that is narcissistic and obsessed with using social media to tell the world what they had for breakfast...maybe it is just that teens are narcissistic. Yes, this generation has more tools to show themselves off, but millennials are simply adapting to the world around them.

Millennials are a 'nightmare' for Wall Street - Business Insider

Millennials are a 'nightmare' for Wall Street - Business Insider | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it
Millennials don't trust the stock market and have a lot of debt.
Madison Dixons insight:

Business Insider says that Millennials are a nightmare for Wall Street because they don't believe in the stock market. Why should they after they've observed it crashing multiple times. It is also a problem because of the massive debt they are in. I think this is a problem with university's, not the graduates. How could anyone possibly pay those debts? People used to be able to pay for college by working summer jobs, but if that was the same today then a summer job would have to pay through the roof. Is it really the millennials fault for not trusting the stock market?

Millennials Don't Know What "Socialism" Means - Hit & Run ... | The Millennial Generation | Scoop.it
To learn more about millennials, check out Reason-Rupe's new report. Young people don't know what socialism is. Recent polls have suggested that.
Madison Dixons insight:

So socialism isn't hanging out with friends? I think the reason a lot of millennials don't understand socialism is because most don't care about politics and therefore don't listen to all its terms. We haven't learned what any of these things really mean. We have witnessed seemly reliable figureheads fall and the economy as an unreliable game. Why should millennials put all their hope in politics? And how can we educate them?

Humblebragging: A Distinct – And Ineffective – Self-Presentation Strategy

Humblebragging: A Distinct - And Ineffective - Self-Presentation Strategy by SSRN Ovul Sezer Harvard Business School Francesca Gino Harvard University - Harvard Business School Michael I. Norton Harva
Madison Dixons insight:

Humblebragging. You know those people who complain to let you know how great everything really is? In this generation we can be awfully narcissistic because you have to "worry about you". This strategy is something that has appeared so people can attempt to be humble but also cocky. With social media today and the online world revolving around individuals, humblebragging has reached an all time high. This article says it's better to just complain because at least those people are sincere. If saving face has turned into being fake, I don't think I'm going to do it.
