Orson Welles in his song says:
“I know what it is to be young… But you, you don’t know what it is to be old.”
I am sure it was a great statement at his time. Does it still hold in today’s fast changing world? Maybe he would have rewritten the lyrics if he wrote them today.
“I know what it is to be old… But you, you know what it is to be young today.”
In short: both generations can learn from each other.
In 2016 my son Emre and I will start a blog series called g–gap – mind the other generation. Every two weeks we will share with you our different views on a subject.
As we were preparing ourselves for these posts Emre talked at a panel organized by HBR Turkey about generation differences. We also started to write for the web version of HBR Turkey a biweekly column called KUSAKLARARASI (among generations). The December 2014 printed issue includes four of those.
In short: we continue to learn from each other.
For those who want to listen to the wonderful Orson Welles’ song: I know what it is to be young
