I’ll admit it: I’m addicted to infographics! So, again I share with you an infographic from GOOD.com about the American Dream and how it’s changing – but not in the direction I would have guessed. Comparing four generations from the “Silent” Generation (I had no idea that was the name of the generation before the Boomers) to Generation Y, it shows that personal fulfillment is incredibly important.
The data that I find most interesting, but it makes sense from an age perspective, is that Gen Y is more likely to go back to school or move to another state than any other generation. Yet, Gen X (my generation) is more willing to start their own business or change industries than any other generation. Data can be molded to fit a person’s viewpoint or for persuasion purposes, but I find it intriguing all the same. Click on the graphic below to see the larger picture.
Is the American Dream changing for you?
Happy Leap Year by the way.
