We have an almost obsessive need to categorize - to put things and people in Nice, neat boxes and then put a name on each box. Then everyone assumes that the box thinks, learns, speaks and acts, and therefore is the same. That's what's happening with the generations.
Imagine you were born at 11:59 PM on 31 December 1945 and I was born at 12:01 a.m. on 1 January 1946. However, according to relevant categories, to go in the "Silence" and I go in the box "Boomer". Now tell me, what difference did two minutes to do in life to live? Absolutely none! Is not that now put things in perspective a little different?
There are plenty of Silents who absolutely do not fit the standard definition of stoic, saving Depression era, people older big band lovers. Boomer are much more in thought and action. So here is a new category - Beyonders.
The concept Beyonder me came when a friend invited me to the stage production Love, Janis, the story of Janis Joplin. As 50-something Boomer, I felt like a child in the audience. I did not know much about Janis - who had lost their lives on the time it was beginning to explore the counter culture. But my friend mid of the 60 was really in the whole scene, like the public. But wait a minute. It was not my friend mid 60s some of the older generation silent? Were not the era of swing? What did they know about the drug scene? But here is rockin 'in the aisles and I was sitting there with your mouth open. It was a AHA moment for me. These Beyonders were much more "with it" than he had imagined. It occurred to me that the generation of baby Beyonders boomers were actually first in their thinking and their experiences. They were adult enough to appreciate, experience and survive the fighting years culture, while some of the Boomers were still too young to get it.
If you are one of the largest Boomers may see their parents and other elders as pretty easy going - not ones to make waves, because I will not be a burden. They like Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman, the music, which like his old shoes, not because they "need" something new, and talk a lot about the "good old days." However, younger boomers may have parents Beyonder.
Their children, on the other hand, are in love with Face Book, Utube, i-Pods, text messages on BlackBerrys. Read a book? Only if you can download a Kindle or something that provides instant access anywhere. Their music can drive you insane, if not make you deaf. Your clothing may look like thrift store rejects, but they are not worried about the perceptions of others.
Bill Cosby once said, "Nothing separates the generations more than music. At the moment a child is eight or nine years, has developed a passion for his own music, which is even stronger than his passion for procrastination and weird clothes. "These children see the future as one with unlimited possibilities. They approach life with a" can do ". They are full of energy, full of life and full of questions, and do not mind asking them. They can show more compassion than the Boomers did in their younger years, and seem to have a greater sense of community.
No wonder we have a communication problem, or for that matter, even be in the same room together? Is one better or worse the other, a right and not the other? No - just a question of our perception of the other.
The next time you rush to put someone in a category, stop. Knowing who is that person, how they think and what is important to them. Next, determine who they are. His perception that anyone can change in minutes. It would be the world a better place if only we took time to meet someone, instead of dismissing them by appearances?
