Rates of depression, anxiety, and self-harm are far higher for those in Gen Z (born after 1996) than any previous generation, including the Millennials. Employers report that Gen Z employees are often more fragile and lacking in life-skills. This talk explores three terrible ideas, interacting with new technology, that have weakened Gen Z, and discusses how young people can put themselves on a path to becoming stronger, smarter, and happier by rejecting these ideas and embracing ancient, time-tested, and culturally widespread advice.
