I’m usually not the kind of person who opens up videos that their family members sends to them, but today I decided to make an exception and see one of the may videos my uncle sends weekly; I’m happy to say that I do not regret it.
This video talks about a different kind of YOLO my generation should embrace, one that means doing what you love but to innovate and recreate what has already been done while working with technology, not be consumed by it. It is sad that most people my age don’t see it that way, but I can also see that changing slowly.
We now live in a world where the linear structure of how our lives should go is outdated, and we now have the tools to reach our goals the way we want to, not the way society dictates. We now live in a world where creativity goes hand in hand with science, and where communication is key in reaching goals.
The corporate ladder has changed. It is no longer a straight line of cold hard steel steps, now its graffitied, colored, spiral with dreams and hopes hanging decorating the ride up to the top.
This is the start of the Millennial revolution, where and entrepreneur does not have to be a man with a suit and PhD in whatever, where a business man does not have to be good with numbers and where a creative mind is actually valued, regardless of how many tattoos or piercings they have.
