Some call our young people as Gen Z or Digital Natives, as they tend to be more digital-savvy and multi-tasking than previous generations. We might also describe them as Gen S (Slash).  In this context, the term ‘Slash’ was coined by Marci Alboher to describe people who have multiple concurrent careers and identities instead of a single cohesive career.
Zygmunt Bauman, the Polish Sociologist/Philosopher has used “liquid modernity” to describe the fluid manner in which a person can shift from one social position to another.
“Be water, my friend…”
Bruce Lee’s idea can also be applied in many diverse contexts. So let’s keep our agility and flexibility for the ever changing world.
