Every once in a while I remember that Tahitians have a regular mailbox and then another one just for baguettes and I try to figure out why I haven"t moved there yet. pic.twitter.com/HzDyUvY3Ui— Matthew Panzarino (@panzer) April 8, 2018
Millenials feature prominently in generational discussions, but as this MSN Money article points out, the stats point to Gen X – folks born between 1965 and 1981 – as the drivers of leadership across the cultural and business spectrum:
#Repost @hfbyrne. 🍯🥜🤤🙌 Does anyone else struggle to find the perfect bar? I’m allergic to tree nuts so it’s near impossible for me. Some don’t have enough calories, some have too many confusing ingredients, not enough protein, too much sugar, etc etc etc. I try to make my own but... time. . Found these yesterday and I had to post bc they. are. amazing and super hidden in the store. Perfect amount of calories if you’re super active, high protein, no added sugar, no dairy, and delicious.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 #protein #proteinbar #raw #handmade #local #la #california #diet #energy #balance #nutrition #healthy #food #foodporn #foodpost #gym #fitness #workout #yoga #peanutbutter
“It seems that all eyes are on the slowly retiring baby boomers or the ascending millennials, now the world"s majority generation. But our recent study revealed that Gen X is playing a critical — and underappreciated — role in leadership as organizations grapple with digital transformation." “We found that Gen X now accounts for 51 percent of leadership roles globally. With an average of 20 years of workplace experience, they are primed to quickly assume nearly all top executive roles." “Some 54 percent of Gen X and 56 percent of millennials reported that they are digitally savvy…That finding is backed up by research by Nielsen, which revealed that Gen X is the most connected generation. Nielsen found that Gen Xers use social media 40 minutes more each week than millennials. They were also more likely than millennials to stay on their phones at the dinner table and spend more time on every type of device — phone, computer, or tablet. And, as it turns out, Gen X is bringing this connectivity to work.”The article’s description of Gen X-ers reads like a horoscope: digitally savvy to excess, masters of “old school” skills but comfortable with breaking down organizational silos and collaborating, successful at taking on heavy workloads, and eager for mentoring and innovation opportunities. Kelly Starrett interviews legendary coach Harry Marra, who coached American athletes to Olympic medals in the decathlon and heptathlon – arguably, the pinnacle competitions for men and women as the best all-around athletes. This 54 minute podcast discusses what being athletically well-rounded means, why it’s important for young people, and how to get there.
