This generation would be the least productive generation in the past 100 years, and if I will be using the term “millennial” I actually mean kids that are born starting from 1994 till date. Interestingly, my kid that was born in 1994, and I know what impact technology has had on him.
This generation is seen as the Facebook and Instagram generation, our millennials are more concerned about having the highest number of followers than actually building meaningful relationships, and they are more concerned about the latest trends on social media than even the latest information about their country.
The millennials know the name of Kanye West’s kid, but how many of them even know the name of the deputy governor of their state? And that shows how bleak the future of the world has suddenly become. Rather than being prepared for life, technology has successfully been able to prepare our millennials for today and today only.
Technology has also made the millennials pretty lazy, how do we mean? Ask the millennial: “What will you like to be” and you hear things like: “a doctor, a banker, physicist, a scientist” and the likes, and then you are forced to imagine what will become of blue collar jobs in a few years from now.
