Aren’t you just talking about life stages? No, it has to do with far more. In fact, each generation approaches each stage of life with its own unique style. For example, the Baby Boomers are very different seniors than their World War II generation parents. They sign up for far more adult education courses, serve in parks and recreation departments, and join in entrepreneurial start-ups. Today’s Millennial Generation twentysomethings are more optimistic and have more heroes than the Gen X twentysomethings before them.
