Revolutions Take a Few Generations
How old were the key players of the American Revolution? A sample rundown:
- Benjamin Franklin: 70
- George Washington: 44
- Alexander Hamilton: 21
What this means is that usually, when big things happen, multiple generations are involved. Whether it's a great new company, a healthy university, a shift in our collective thinking, or a resurgent neighborhood, having people on board born in different eras is an asset.
No generation is an island.
