In this day and age, life as we know it is incomparable to those of 10 plus years ago. Communication, transportation and technology has been growing faster than ever, it is mind blowing to think about how much the human species has grown in the last decade, and it ain’t stopping or getting slower anytime soon. Millennials are living at the heart of this transition and it will take more than our previous generation’s doing to make the cut.
So you’ve graduated with honors and advance placement classes with 4.0 GPA, big deal, or finished college in 4 years with attained your MBA, so what? In this day and age, it’s more than academic and experience, it takes an individual with a set of verticals but has the horizontal outlook and mindset. With that in mind, here are the 3 life changing tips all millennial needs to know:
1.) Start early, literally. Start right now.
When you’re young, chances are you have more resources with no financial stress, whether it’s staying at home with no rent due or continuously receives allowances. The key here is to leverage your resources, take advantage of the natural perks in your settings and attack on the ventures and the impossibles. What do you have to loose? How about time? How active are you in a 24 hour day? Now is the time to wind up that clock 2 hrs earlier and quit the snooze game. It will boost your productivity, mental health and ultimately make you feel more alert.

2.) Do not confuse effort with result
Giving it a go or did your best differs by a galaxy when compared with expected results. In this fast pace world, people often oversee efforts and only focus on the bottomline, the true-blue result backed by numbers. It’s time to push even further and consistently deliver result.

Building a set of verticals that streamlines your interests is just as critical as having a global outlook and thinking big. Always strive to learn new skills that has a direct attribute to your core, become the jack of all trades in your field. In result, this will lead yourself into a leadership role, become more confident and highly adaptable .
