Our Distracted, Always-On Reality
In a recent Time-Warner Study, “Digital Natives” (Millennials in their twenties who grew up with digital) switched media venues 27 times per non-working hour. That’s roughly 13 times in 30 minutes or the time it takes to watch one episode of The Office. “Digital immigrants,” who grew up with old-school technology and adapted to digital, switched media venues 17 times per non-working hour. In addition, Millennial are trending to shift jobs 7 times before they are 30. This is a workforce where change is a daily constant. In addition, by 2020, Millennials (born from 1982 to 2004) are expected to make up nearly half the workforce.
