The future of Millennials, the generation born between 1981 and 1996, is hard to predict, just like the Internet was not predicted or known in 1969.
There will be new methods for earning money, new places to live, and new ways to be old in the world. And there will be challenges too, like the ever-accelerating climate crisis.
In 50 years, our genetic make-up and gene-related technology will evolve to be more than just a record. It will be useful and relatively inexpensive.
This way we can figure out what to plan for ourselves, based on how we are, genetically: We’ll probably be able to intervene on the genetic predisposition of people (on conditions like Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease).
As the internet and technology integrate every aspect of our lives, we would have smart algorithms to solve problems that seem daunting right now.
Things like finding the right, high paying job suitable for us, or where to save for maximum returns, tailored to our lifestyle, will be made a reality using these algorithms.
The concept of retirement and getting the pension seems outdated and unnecessary in this age of everything being in constant motion, thanks to the digital economy and the app-based world around us.
Retirement would be an option, something a few can afford, while the rest can continue to work, albeit in a different way, thanks to technology.
A life-long commitment to working and learning new skills will be one of the top needs of the future.
Unlike previous generations, millennials cannot just be farmers or postmen that work until the age of 60 and then retire, not knowing anything else apart from the one job done their entire lifetime.

If we have our friends, family, a career and a few hobbies, we don't need to attach our identity to a group.
Discovering your core values, and having a vision is key to finding your mission.
You have to know where you want to go (Vision) and create a road map that takes you there (Values). Having these foundational pillars in your life makes us less susceptible to what others think and do.
Charismatic people offer encouragement instead of skeptically listening to people’s goals and ideas. Find ways to encourage people while still holding them accountable:
Charismatic people have lots of connections and share them regularly. Highly charismatic people are not only great at meeting new people, but also sharing their talent with their connections by introducing people who they know will get along well.
This quality is part of the reason charismatic people are such sought after connections; they spread their social wealth.
Likable leaders earn the trust of their team members and treat them well, and that makes the team’s performance better.
Teams with likable leaders tend to be more stable long-term because of lower turnover rates and are also better with changes since they are more likely to have employees committing to adopting to new ways.
