Why 30 Is Not The New 20

Posted on May 5, 2014 in Candidate Blog, Client Blog, Training Academy - 0 comments - 0

People often say, 30 is the new 20. Marriage happened later; work happened later; kids happened later; even death happened later. But is 30 really the new 20? When we think about child development, we all know that the first five years are critical periods for language and attachment, but what about our careers, families and adult development? The best time to prepare for a career or marriage is before you have one, and our 20s, in fact, is the defining decade of adulthood.

If you are in your 20s, here’s some advice for you:

1. Invest in your future and start today – do something that adds value to who you want to become in the future

2. Connect with people and leverage those ties to help you achieve your goals

If you are a manager struggling on how to manage the new generation employees, watch this TED talk here, or better yet, invite them to watch it with you. It will change their lives.
