OOOkay! The internet finally got going. Here is a brief overview of yesterday’s chat. Which was a VERY interesting one. Our group is showing we are interested in ALL THINGS millennial.
Here are 4 quick takeaways from how we perceive the work/life balance:
- It is no longer just BALANCE – it is integration as well as balance. With technology how it is, we can take care of work while we are with friends or we can talk with friends while we are at work. Balance means making time for both, integration allows us to do this more efficiently.
- There are certain networks and spots in our lives that we keep personal. Many different parts of our lives are connected, but it seemed that we all had one realm that was kept apart from professional networks (usually Facebook).
- Time management tips? 1) Say no to things that aren’t beneficial; 2) Schedule out your day; 3) Don’t forget about the classic to-do list.
- Response time to all different types of outlets depend on urgency of the situation, scheduled in your time management, and understood by the person sending the original request.

Next Weeks Topic!
A lot of people liked the other choice on the topic poll. SO! This next week’s theme will be just that – ‘How is the current economy affecting #millenials’ career & life plans?”
Many of us are planning or planned a certain route to take after graduating high school, undergrad and/or grad school. But for most of us, those plans required the availability of a certain job position, a certain income, or a certain place to live. With the economy the way it is and the recent budget deal, those from our millennial generation are worrying more about the day-to-day challenges of paying for things rather than following our original plans.
