The young/old dynamic

gif by Feliks Tomasz Konczakowski

Younger people are generally more obsessed and driven. Older folks are generally more accepting of the status quo, albeit through jadedness rather than experience.

The juniors depend on the adults to help guide them through operational jungles. The seniors lean on younger folks to remain naive and use their lofty dreams to gather raw material. There’s no need to medicate the starlets out of their creative urges–they will figure out the harsh realities of survival later when they have to earn a paycheck.

The young and the old, the old and the young. The symbiotic relationship between generations breathes new elements of innovation, wisdom, and cynicism into the palette of life.

It is best to keep the dynamism moving, all believing, betting, and guessing what comes next.
