Why is this world racing at the speed of light – or so they tell us – yet strength lays in the calmness and endurance?
I read this post on swiss-miss this morning:
We live in The Age Of Everything. Why commit? There are 80 milllion Millennials aged 9-28 in the U.S. alone. Half are already in college or the workforce, and the women will be a tornado. They group around shared affinity more than shared nationality, they’re prosumers not consumers, and they care more about peer recommendation than corporate reputation. They grew up in a world where change is too fast to process, but they know one thing: if you wait a minute or two, something better is sure to be along. They live on an IV drip of real-time connection, and are fiercely interdependent. If you’re a company, failing to consider their preferences would be, in their own vernacular, WOMBAT–a waste of money, brains and time.
I don’t understand that things move so fast, but we generally don’t take the time off to renew ourselves, which truly lays in calmness and just letting time go by.
How do things like this time-piece fit in with the junkworld of Walmart products?
If you are an overachiever like me and need to get things done, you need to read this book which presents a really good method on how to keep on top of things.
