I came across this article How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation today, and while I have never considered myself a “millennial”, I am on the oldest end of that time line. Based on this feelings and perspective of Anne, and others she interviewed, I would say I’m closer to ever than being a millennial.
What has been dubbed adulting, or what Anne has nicknamed “errand paralysis”, the mundane day to day tasks of dry cleaning, post office, or other repetitive analog tasks.
But the more I tried to figure out my errand paralysis, the more the actual parameters of burnout began to reveal themselves. Burnout and the behaviors and weight that accompany it
Anne makes some effective correlation to the burnout many of us feel in having been through school to come out to poor job prospects, or assuming massive debt to acquire more education, only to find the outcome suboptimal.
It you are a millennial, or a millennial in denial, or you know one. You need to take 10 minutes to sit down and read through Anne’s article at least once or twice.
