Nice to know that most, if not all of us Xers, aren’t alone in this. If there’s strength in numbers we are seriously in for a long battle to remain relevant. I’ve had more success in building relationships with millenials (I’ve raised 3 of them) compared to the boomers. Millenials, although interpreted as slackers or just soft compared to us, are quite a positive bunch. At 47, drawing from their office energy has been invigorating and a lesson to drop the pessimism and adopt a bit of positivity….just a bit, I am an Xer after all.
