Young Generation Laziness

Do you also hear a similar dream from most young people? They want to be rich and work as little as possible.

Is this a trend, a 'lost generation' or did humans always wished to tan on a beach while being served?

It reminded me a story I read somewhere about a crow that sat on a tree and didn't do anything all day long. A small rabbit saw him and asked:

"Can I sit like you all day long and do nothing?"

"Sure," said the crow.

The small rabbit sat on a lower branch, beneath the crow and rested happily.

Suddenly a fox appeared from nowhere, jumped on the small rabbit and ate it.

The moral of the story:

To have the luxury of sitting all day doing nothing, you have to sit really high.

Do you also feel that the younger the generation is, the more they feel entitled to doing very little without the motivation to work for it?

How can organizations deal with this state of mind of the young generation?

Motivating young people to succeed on their own can be a complex process, and there are many different approaches that can be effective. Here are a three suggestions to consider:

• Encourage exploration and creativity: Encourage your young employees to explore their interests and passion in their role and support them in pursuing creative projects or activities. This can help foster a sense of curiosity and innovation, and may lead to new opportunities for success.

• Teach resilience: Help young people develop resilience by teaching them to bounce back from setbacks and failures, and to view challenges as opportunities for growth. This can help them stay motivated and focused, even in the face of obstacles.

• Foster a growth mindset: Encourage young employees to adopt a growth mindset, where they see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow, rather than as fixed limitations. This can help them stay motivated and open to new experiences and challenges.
