27 INSIGHTFUL NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS CONTRASTED BETWEEN MILLENNIALS AND BOOMERS

Happy new year! I hope you are as amped as I am about the possibilities and opportunities that 2014 will bring. What epic feat will you conquer this year?
 
2014 Millennial & Boomer Resolutions
 
It’s interesting how much a persons new year's resolution can say about what they value, their phase of life and perspective of the world. I find it fascinating how similar and yet how different the yearly priorities can be across generations. In many aspects, the resolutions of the emerging generations can be fulfilled by the older generations and vice versa. Perhaps it would behoove all of us to work more collaboratively to fill in the gaps to make 2014 the best year yet. Everyone, no matter your age, has value but it’s up to us to mine it. I hope you enjoy a few of the tongue and cheek and the said and un-said resolutions of 2014.
