A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

Insightful Exchange: Two Smart Generations

Read this post on the BellDesign Blog. It is a fascinating discussion between a professional woman named Charlotte Bell and her 23-year old daughter who works in internet marketing and is considering post-graduate study in business. Her daughter's insights give Charlotte some hope for the future. My hunch is this is a classic Apple-Doesn't-Fall-Too-Far-From-The-Tree scenario, as Charlotte's blog has more interesting insights than this. Thanks ladies for your transparency and willingness to share.

Ooo! I found the social aspect and the preferred venue really interesting: No door-to-door, but gatherings are good. Actually, there was a lot in their exchange to spark several ideas.

Thanks for sharing, Barry!

Thanks Liz. I found the part about "My generation is smart and active, but unguided" as rather telling. I was also intrigued by her comment..."because its not listed out for them in an orientation packet." These young people have always been protected, provided for and told they are all winners. It really is easy to understand why young people have such high expectations and a sense of entitlement when they get their first job.
