5 Things Millennials Are NOT Today

I’m a millennial.

I deal with all of the problems below on a daily basis. But I’m definitely not alone. Chances are, you’re a millennial too and you’re dealing with the same issues every single day of the week.

I’m one of the hundreds of millions of millennials who are dealing with impatience, lack of dexterity, bad focusing skills, a calm-free mind and one more thing that nobody talks about these days, but it’s so important!

Millennials are a lot of things, but they are not these 5 crucial things:

  1. Patient — Millennials have no time to spare because they don’t allow themselves to have a few minutes to spare. Their patience is absolutely zero. Put a millennial to sit in an empty room for 10 minutes and he will literally go nuts after about 3 or 4 minutes;
  2. Dexterous — You can’t count on a millennial to do stuff around the house, for example. They can’t hold a screwdriver in their hands, let alone use one. They can’t even fix the wobbly table, although all they have to do is put some folded paper under one of the table’s legs. All millennials have the hands of a pianist, yet none of them plays the piano;
  3. Focused — This is a problem that has become an epidemic. You are now 8 seconds away from losing focus on reading this article. There, your focus is gone now. Millenials have so many on their heads, it’s impossible for them to keep their focus on one thing at a time;
  4. Calm — One thing millennials are dealing with is a huge lack of calmness. Meditation, yoga, mindfulness, they’re all tools millennials are desperately using to try and stay calm and make it through the day. But where is this lack of calm coming from? It’s all in their heads, of course, but the fact that they see it as a problem makes it so much worse. They’re not calm because they can’t keep calm, regardless of how many “Keep Calm and Move On” mugs they buy for the office;
  5. Loving — There’s a whole lack of love amongst millennials. They’re too fast-paced to sit down, relax and try and feel love for the ones they should love. For their moms, dads, grandmas or grandpas, or for their significant other. This lack of love, both as a giving and as a receiving, is at the core of the problems millennials are dealing with.
