I was talking to my friend Julie the other day when she said something that I got stuck on, she was talking about Social Networking and staying current and she said, "it is important to have a 20 something in your corner so that we can keep up to date with what is current." She was so right.
We don't email anymore. Blogs are so 2000. Nobody reads anything longer than 140 characters. Everyone speaks in acronyms. I used to think that conducting relationships via text messages was horrible and offensive but not anymore. Couples begin and end relationships with fewer words than a dinner menu. Dealing with tough subjects in person is lame and pointless.
I don't care whether or not people like it or not, what I care about is staying current in a world that is rapidly changing. Staying relevant so that when my kids are navigating these twists and turns I can have conversations with them about what to do and how to handle things. So I got a 20 year old in my corner.
Who is your 20 year old?
