"The notion that one can do anything is clearly liberating. But life without constraints has also proved a recipe for endless searching, endless questioning of aspirations. It has made this generation obsessed with self-development and determined, for as long as possible, to minimise personal commitments in order to maximise the options open to them. One might see this as a sign of extended adolescence. Eventually, they will be forced to realise that living is as much about closing possibilities as it is about creating them."
I was sent this article by a good friend of mine (Thanks Sheryl Shah!) - not sure what I make of it exactly...agree in parts and disagree in others...I might just ignore it and pretend I never read it... ;)
