It's about damn time that our generation takes a look at itself and actually realizes that it's time to grow up. We are the most coddled generation in history and it is apparent in both our work ethic and our outlook on life. We expect things to be hand delivered to us and we love attention and praise for doing what is required of us.
We are easily one of the softest generations in history and it is time we address this issue now before it gets too out of hand. If we want to change the way things are moving for our generation, we have to break old habits that are keeping us down. Sometimes these habits and thoughts were put into our minds by our parents and our society, but we've got to man up and to take initiative before we develop into a bunch of soft whine-y babies. Here are the 10 reasons why this generation is soft:
The New Generation Movement can resolve the issues between Erbil and Baghdad and make the Iraqi Constitution for our citizens.' New Generation will do this in a way that empowers women and girls in political decision-making. Women and girls should not be used to decorate the table of politicians. Today, London’s fashionable diners can tuck into an updated version of the very same “little cheesy pineapple one” snack (deep fried with jellied pineapple and fancy cheese) at retro-themed. Feren OS is a free and open-source operating system with a pseudo-rolling-release nature. It is designed to be stable, more powerful, and more secure. With a new yet familiar user experience now included, it has never been a better time to check out Feren OS. Feren OS, made for today's and tomorrow's generation - Troubleshooting. So I accidentally made a mistake causing me to have to change the signing key on the Feren OS Repositories (I deleted the original signing key for signing packages in the repositories by mistake) which means that the Feren OS Repositories had to be updated with a new.
We are used to being spoon fed everything.
Everything is too convenient for our generation, our parents are not the only ones at fault in this situation, society is the culprit as well. We understand that our parents wanted to give us the life they never had, but that may just be the problem. We have been coddled from birth in this perfect bubble where we get what we want, when we want.
It's time we wake up and realize the real world doesn't spoon feed anyone. It's a rough place and once you leave the confines of your college dorm or your parents home, you will have a rough adjustment if you think everything is going to be as easy as living at home.
In this video, I am going to show an overview of feren OS 2019.04 and some of the applications pre-installed.#ferenOS #linux #Cinnamon #opensourcehttps://bra.
We seek recognition for the dumbest things.
There has never been an attention-thirsty generation quite like this. From elementary school, we had our teachers and parents kissing our asses and rewarding us for every minor thing that we did. Do well on a test, here's a sticker; good report card, parents buy us a gift. This reward system has caused us to seek attention for everything that we do.
Now no task can be done without our seeking some sort of reward for it; for example: even when we do tasks that are normally required of us at work or in our everyday lives, we seek recognition. Our mentality when it comes to this issue needs to be changed, as people need to realize that they do not need attention for everything they do. Honestly, it's getting a little ridiculous. Do you think the baby boomer generation got to where they are today by always yearning for attention and recognition?
They expect to work 9 to 5 and become successful.
A big misconception in this generation is the idea that getting rich quick is actually a feasible feat. This great misconception is a driving force in today's generation and it is our job to bring a change to this way of thinking. Becoming successful is going to take time and effort, nothing comes easy in this world.
If you truly want to become successful, you're going to have to go beyond the call of duty in order to show people that you are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. If you want a 9 to 5, go work at Starbucks or the Post Office, but if you truly want to make anything of yourself, you're going to need to understand that a 9 to 5 mentality is going to get you nowhere.
We get offended when someone criticizes us with the intention of helping us improve as human beings.
I have never witnessed a softer generation in my life. Our generation has to be one of the most pampered and whine-y generations in history. This extends all the way to the manner in which people take criticism. It is impossible to give constructive criticism to people in our generation as we all think that we have the answers to everything.
If someone who has been through a certain experience is trying to help you go through a similar one, it is imperative that we listen to him as he has our best interests in mind. Put your ego to the side and take advice, you do not have to listen word for word, but he will bring up some useful points to help you improve your situation.
We feel a sense of entitlement, as if the world owes us something for being alive.
The biggest difference between our generation and the generations before us is that we were raised in a time when this country was thriving economically. In those times, we were given whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. This has led to a sense of entitlement with everything that we do.
Now that we are in a recession and times are difficult economically, it is hard for us to understand that we can't get everything that we want. This also translates to the manner in which we look for jobs and our work ethic when we get those jobs. In a highly competitive world, we are going to get nowhere thinking the world owes us anything.
In order to differentiate yourself from the crowd, you are going to have to show something different in your work ethic. We are the most judged generation and the older folks don't expect much from us. Prove them wrong with your work ethic and show them that you know the world is yours, but it doesn't owe you anything.
We always look for the easy way out.
We have to be one of the laziest generations in history. Although we are smart and really skilled, our downfall is that we do not seem to work well in environments that don't keep us interested. In addition, we all look for the easy way out of things.
No one wants to roll up their sleeves and actually get work done, as they are used to having things served to them. Well it's time we woke up and realized we are lazy and we have lazy habits. We constantly wait until the last minute to get things done and we always find something more interesting to do than the duties we are obligated to get done.
As you read this article, you probably have a pile of work to finish before you can leave the office, but who cares? You'd rather sit there and read our site, then get that work done.
Gen-Y is easily flustered by the obstacles we face.
What happened to all the people who enjoyed being challenged and solving problems? One of our biggest faults as a group is the way we are easily deterred by obstacles. Instead of facing obstacles with grit and creativity, we let them conquer us.
Many people in our generation see hurdles on the road to success as daunting tasks that can never be completed. Instead of getting intimidated, we need to take the proper time and focus to actually circumvent the issue if we want to improve ourselves. Just because someone has failed at something and they deem it impossible doesn't mean it cannot be done.
We reward stupidity.
Has there been a time where stupidity has been rewarded quite like the way it is in our generation? It is hard to believe that people can get national recognition for the dumb things they have done. For example: Kim Kardashian has become famous for her sex tape or Lindsay Lohan for her insane drug habits.
In America, stupidity is encouraged more than it is frowned upon. Just look at the TV shows people find interesting these days, some include the likes of 'The Jersey Shore,' 'Buckwild' and even 'Teen Mom.' If this isn't enough to prove this point, look how much attention Amanda Bynes has gotten recently for her wild antics.
More people in our generation know what is going on with Kim Kardashian than what is actually going on in the world. If you want to read more on this issue please refer back to our piece Why Do We Reward Stupidity?
Time out is our punishment whereas older generations got beatings.
We have all heard stories that our grandparents and parents have told us of how they used to be physically reprimanded for their transgressions. Nowadays, it's considered child abuse if you lay a hand on your child. This is a problem because kids end up bitching their parents out and most of the time it just ends in a screaming match.
People used to consider beatings a normal form of punishment that really was straight to the point and effective at getting the idea across. Now people consider time out punishment, this has to be one of the softest transitions in our generation. If you have a fresh mouth with your parents, there is nothing wrong if they decide to give you a quick smack across that mouth. Would that teach you to keep your mouth shut or will putting you in timeout for an hour do the job?
We live in an era that is too politically correct.
It has come to a point in our society where we have to be extremely cautious with what we say because people have become way too sensitive. You cannot speak freely without offending someone these days and this is really a nuisance. More terms have been labeled as offensive in this generation than at any time before. People need to realize that not everything that is said is meant to be offensive, it is just a style of talking that people may use.
As Roy Hibbert can attest, we live in an era in which you can get charged $75K for saying 'no homo.' Don't be so hard on those around you, as it's not all about you and what you think, if you find yourself getting offended at everything people say, it's time you realize that it's you and not them.
Well, each of us is entitled to their opinion. The current generation is not like any other generation I have seen in history. Due to the rise in technology, the world is evolving fast and changing the way most of us do things. Today’s young generation is so used to the technology which they learn very quickly. It could be considered as a benediction, but there are times when it is not appropriate.
The way things worked in my generation, which was the 80’s, has changed drastically. And I do not believe that the ways some things have progressed are for the better. But that is my point of view. If I decided to write this post, it is because of young people laughing at the way a man my age did things.
Today’s generation believes that they are entitled to everything without the need of lifting a single finger. This generation thinks it has the right to being spoon fed all of its desires while those before them worked hard for everything that they do have. And yes, there are pros and cons in all generations.
The Old and New Generation
Some young people were throwing stuff on the ground while there was a trash bin just ten feet away. An older man around my age told them to pick their garbage. One girl picked it all up while the others were laughing and said to the man that his generation did also not care about saving the environment.
I am living in Austria, and I admire this country, so I knew this situation would not degenerate into unfortunate circumstances. As I listened to this while I passed by, I realized that even if bio-products did not exist in stores yet, we lived more naturally. These young people were mistaken.
In My Generation
In my generation, we were already recycling. We returned all glass bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the factory to be washed and sterilized and refilled so that it could use the same containers over and over.
Mothers washed diapers made of old clothing because they did not have the throw-away kind we have today. They dried clothes on a line with for only power the wind and sun and not a dryer. Most children, in my homeland, got the old clothes from their older relatives, not new or brand clothing each time.
We had to push a mower with the strength of our arms to make the blades spin instead of firing up a motor that runs on electricity or gasoline just to cut the lawn. In my generation, we were outside all day and exercised by playing sports with others children rather than going to a health club. We did not want to stay inside the house.
More of My Generation
In school, my generation refilled writing pens with ink cartridges instead of getting a new pen. Many of us took a tram or a bus; others used their bicycles to go to school while some of us walked instead of turning their parents into a permanent taxi service.
The old generation met friends face to face to have real conversations rather than texting each other all the time. We walked everywhere, to the store or up the stairs instead of climbing into our car or on a motored skateboard each time we had to go two or three blocks away.
At home, we had only one TV, or radio, not a television in our room. And we had no color or a massive size of today’s TV screen but rather a black and white which could get only three or four channels. When we packed a fragile item to send by post mail, we used an old newspaper to wrap it, which I still do.
Yet, the current generation cries and weeps of how we people of the old generation are. I have nothing against progress, but I am against unbalance in a world where we have everything.
Some Difference about the Old and New Generation
Most of the new generation expects things to be done for them. If something requires some extra effort or focus, they are easily discouraged. But if we want to reach success in this day and age, it is expected us to work to achieve our dreams.
The old generation knows that the world does not owe them squat. It understands that no one else than them can do it and that is their responsibility to make something of themselves. It was a more independent generation.
A Generation of Always Wanting More
The new generation seems always to want more which is not bad. But many do not appreciate the simple things around them. They are very careless and are still trying to get more, rather than being happy with what they have.
The old generation knows that resources are limited and that they have to be more resourceful with what they have. They remember the old times, and it helps them appreciate all that they are given.
No More Punishments
The new generation knows timeout is a small slap on the wrist. In older times, we actually got a beating. The generation of today understands the full advantage of these light punishments. That is why they are tending not to listen after all.
The old generation had it rough when it came to punishment. Just like in the army, through a sports coach or a mentor, there is nothing quite like tough love. It actually beat them into shape and made stepping out of line very frightening, as there were consequences for their actions.
Technology and Generation
What shows that the new generation is less trusting and more reliant on technology is that even after they decide to meet somewhere at a particular time, they still text each other numerous times to confirm or follow up. Using technology often hinders intuition and instinct like using a calculator instead of mentally counting.
Since mobile phones did not exist yet, it was imperative for the old generation to trust each other. When they agreed upon a time and a meeting at a specific location, they relied on the other person to be there as well.
The New Generation and Social Networks
Nowadays, there is no longer a sense of honor, because most people hide behind a computer screen. In the new generation, there is a considerable amount of haters using social networks to actually handle small or significant issues which I consider to be a weakness.
When you handle issues or hate for no reason over Facebook or Twitter, it just proves that you are a weak person. I just put an ad in one of my groups for teaching Kung Fu, and one hater wrote “Kung Fu clown.” And this for no reason as I have never seen or met the guy before.

Back in the old days, when someone had an issue with you, they would either keep to themselves or personally have the balls to come and confront you. It was the proper way of dealing with stuff. I am not talking about violence which sadly enough, is shown more and more on social media these days.

My Final Word on Generation
Outdatedferen Os Made For Today's And Tomorrow's Generation Tv
The new generation relies too much on the internet and social media for their lives and doing things. It is okay to use it but not to abuse it. My final word is that each generation has its own advantages and downsides, but the most important in all of this is that each generation, old or new, has to give lessons which are valuable for future generation.
