In the YouTube video “The Millennials in the workplace interview” By Simon Sinek, states that the Millennials need to learn Balance with their social media and physical life. Millennials meaning anyone who uses a cell phone or Social Media. Throughout the Interview, Simon is very Zealous, Empathetic, apologetic, and humorous. He uses Metaphors, they say I say, diction, and Parallel Structure.

I do agree with Simon about the Millennials needing to learn Balance with their social media and physical life because I also need to learn the balance between my social media life and physical life, I spend too much time on social media, I feel like I need to always post on Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook.

2 Technology. 3 Impatience. 4 Environment.” (2016), Simon states that Parents are the reasons the Millennials are feeling there is a missing piece, now the Millennials don’t know that missing piece, but it might be “impact”, because “millennials are wonderful, idealistic, hardworking smart kids who’ve just graduated school and are in their entry-level jobs and when asked “how’s it going?” they say “I think I’m going to quit.” And we’re like “why?” and they say “I’m not making an impact.” To which we say - “you’ve only been there eight months…” (2016), well to be fair everybody wants to make an impact, not everyone wants to work just to work, people want to do something in this world, and Millennials express that differently, in a lazy way.

I have experience with technology, I know how to interact with people, I know how to have a meaningful relationship, I know how to be real human being. I might be a “digital Zombie” but at least I know how to be real human
