Today I’m doing my first Habitat for Humanity project in New Orleans!
I just read this on Penelope Trunk’s blog and thought is was intriguing/brilliant. Penelope is announcing a webinar where she’ll be at Seth Godin’s house (pretty cool!). Here’s what Seth says about careers and GenY:
My take is that [generation Y] is the last one that will be as totally brainwashed by the system, by the schools and by companies and by society to believe that the industrial age (and compliance) is their ticket to the carnival. The smart ones will see that and play a different game, and the sooner they realize how bad the scam is, the faster they’ll recover.
WOW. Some interesting points:
- We are all brainwashed, including GenY (even though they are the tail end)
- Schools and companies and society are brainwashing us
- Compliance to the “industrial age” is not good – we’re blinded by whatever their promise is
- Look for the different game… perhaps a different way to manage your career (income security?) and start moving forward in that direction
