Recently I had a discussion about the youth of today and what people are doing to help them.

With a population who is living longer, more productive lives, we have an issue; Nature is having a hard time making way for the innovation of the young.

In a world where people are spending more and more time in front of screens how are we going to drag kids away to teach them to build houses, fix power lines, dig drains and make them see the value in these occupations?

In my opinion building something with your hands is a very important skill and can give you a great feeling of satisfaction. Jobs that involve your mind, hands, blisters and dirt need to be elevated to a position of craftsmanship again.

So what can you do for the youth of today? I’m going to train a junior up over the next year and I know someone who is giving their time to train youth in business and others who run groups. I’m just hoping I have planted a seed and it will grow into something when the time is right.

Have a great week and keep and eye out for a promising youth you can help and ignore the baggy jeans like in todays image.

My best.
