"Progressive companies, good companies to work for. Generally. Wouldn't you agree? Yes, yes. Amazon. Trader Joe's. Yeah, I would think generally they have a good reputation, kind of a more progressive company. And she said, you know, I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't what I thought. And would you have me back? And of course, she left on good terms and doctors, you know, I'd love to have you back. Same thing happened to this other lead assistant. She said, in less than three months later, came back and said, I really don't know what I was thinking. I like shopping at Trader Joe's. I thought it'd be good to work there. But I'll tell you what, I like shopping there, a whole lot better than I like stuck in the shelves. She actually had a pretty good sense of humor about it. She said, I don't know what I was thinking. I still like shopping there, but I don't care for stock in the shelves. And she said, would you have me back? Now, both these team members need jobs. And so they can't, in both cases, we made the decision with my guidance and doctors experienced it to bring them back. And so sure. And I know these two lead assistants. Actually, I know them. I get to know my team members of our clients pretty well. And I reached out to them. And I had an individual conversation with each of them. And I said, I just look at no judgment. I just want to know a little bit more about your experience and maybe it's something that might benefit me or benefit our clients somewhere down the road. And the first one that left for Amazon said, you know what, Gary, I guess I didn't realize what I had here. And you know, working for Amazon was just a job. There was no purpose. This was her words not mine. These were her words. There was no purpose. You know, other than driving the van around, delivering packages. There was no bigger purpose. And she said, you know, I maybe took for granted what we do here, but I like what we do in dentistry because of our connection with our patients and our ability to make a difference with these patients. So what she was saying was, there was no why. For her at Amazon. Right. Maybe there was, but she didn't know it, right? There was no why. She didn't use those words. She had never heard of Simon sinek, but in her own words, she was saying, there was no purpose there. There was no driving force for me to be there. There was no bigger reason for me to be there other than to load the van with packages every day and deliver them where they're supposed to go. Yeah, the only purpose is I get a paycheck, but go to paycheck. You know what? Hey, I've been there. I've been there. I had many jobs, I started working on this 13 years old. I had many jobs through my teen years and early adulthood. That were just that. It was a paycheck to put gas in my car. You know? And hey, I get it. But you know, at some point, work needs to be more than that. And then the other gallop that left to go to Trader Joe's, you know, said the same thing that there was no purpose there. Other than, you know, putting the boxes on the shelf. Which way she said, frankly, I was tired of that by about noon, the first day. There was no greater purpose. And you know what? I like it here because we really do make it her words. We make a difference in the life of our patients. Make a difference. Now, so how do we take this back and tie this to the episode? The importance of having a strong why. Well, I think if you have a strong why, there's two audiences for that why. And that is, your team members and your patients. Now let's also tie this into team members and the employment situation today. By the way, if you are having trouble filling open positions, know that you've got a lot of company in that. My friend Chris barrow, Chris barrow is a wonderful resource in England. Recently wrote a blog post about this. And he said, hey, if you have recently hired someone to discover very quickly that it wasn't working out, you're not alone. This is happening a lot. If this has happened, and he gave a quick little for phrase saying that I use a lot and he said, hey, instead of just getting stuck in the mud about this and getting despondent about I'm never going to find someone, you know, just use this little memory mnemonic. Some some will some won't so what next. And in this context it means some of your hires are going to work out great. Some won't. So what? So what does it mean that you don't care about it or you're going to miss hire all that means is that occasionally you'll stub your toe and instead of getting stuck there next, move on to the next one. And so, you know, the biggest generational group in our society today are millennials. In 2021, the millennial population, millennials are defined by people born from 1980 to the year 2000. So anyone born in that time period. They've surpassed the previous largest generation, which were baby boomers. Baby boomers were born from 1946 to 1964. You can always remember that because the last two digits are reversed. They are born from 1946 right after World War II to 1964. So that 18 year time period defines the baby boom and up until last year, they were the largest group. Well, what's happened to the baby boomers? They're getting older. Many of them are here. And some of them are no longer here. And so they're not making any more of them. You don't make any more of those. And so the millennial generation surpassed that group. And it's dangerous to use very broad generalities about any generation. Whether it's positive or negative, you know, one thing is often said about millennials is they're very hard workers. Now that's a positive generalization. But it's very dangerous to use broad generalizations across the entire population like that. But one thing I have noticed in studying millennial, my dental students are millennials. So I've done a lot of study in terms of how to be more effective with millennials. They're my dental students. And I have 580,000 students a year. I teach all four classes, a 145 Dell students per course per class. Run the math on that. That's 580 dental students. And I want to be effective with them. And so I've studied how to be effective with millennials. And one of the things millennials want in a positive way. Now, remember, this doesn't apply to every millennial. But generally, millennials want to be involved in something that's bigger than themselves. They want to be involved in a cause in something. You know, they appreciate apology. I mean, for example, they might appreciate ecology and their cause is saving the planet, right? And there are some passionate people around that, right? And so when we think about it, the two audiences for your why would be your team members or potential team members if you're hiring, and if you can give a strong why, you.

So that's absurd. Amount of money that made gaming in china china's always been a bit of a cat and mouse games between the government and gamers right so gamers note that this is probably not something that government encourages but in a government see site the economic benefits as well as they are a great tool for china to export their culture and be a medium detail.

And we find another parts of the world where we're measures like this had been enacted Such as in south korea where they tried to to limit online video game play to maximize study time and maximize sleep We found after eight year experiment. They're pretty conclusive evidence that the intervention was a failure. It's a bold move on. I'm sure there are some parents who were are are interested in whose ears perked up But it's certainly not a move that's Supported in any way about the signs. Some parents will say that kids simply playing too much. There's something kind of magical happen to to young people when they turn eighteen.

You're listening to news day, BBC World Service, Claire McDonnell and Lawrence Pollard. With you coming up. We'll go to Kenya. In a moment. We'll also hear from the rabbi who is working to resettle Afghans in the US. Why was that? A coup in Guinea That is Africa dailies subject today and a report looking at the ice of Mt. Kilimanjaro. It's melting and fast. I support with Isaac all on the way right here on Tuesday. We're going to start in Kenya and the flash point of Wikipedia. Six people have been killed in one week attacks there in that area. Have been causing people to flee their villages. A school was set on fire yesterday in the interior minister has now said that they're going to carry out operations with curfews to flush out criminal groups. The situation seems to reflect a kind of the web of conflict there between land, livestock and so on. BBC's Ferdinand on Monday was standing by to talk to us about that from Nairobi. But We've just lost the line. So as soon as we get the line back to 30, we're going to be talking about that story. Curfew in like, Keep you in Kenya. Yeah, I'm there. What happened? Hey, Ferdinand. Hello. Sorry we didn't hear you. Hello. It's Lawrence. Here. Hello. We lost the line to you. And then you're back. So listen, Thank you and apologies to you and our listeners as well. But I'm glad to have you there. Give us a bit of context about what's going on in this region. What kind of problems? What's the background? So this is an area which is basically owned by private individuals. That could be private citizens of communities in Kenya to call conservancies and it's where most of the land is left. Inasmuch all states so that you know nature can be preserved as a place you are wild animals room freely, but people also are allowed to till their land and leave. And do you know the economic activities and have villages but for a long time, this area also which has been greatly contested the people who basically view themselves as quarters. Uh, they do not have enough land and that others like you know communities in the area or some individuals of hundreds of acres of land, so there's nearly every election cycle, The government says. There appears to be heightened activity, especially certain communities being targeted or driven now to certain individuals being driven out, and they have said that we had to get the bottom of this. Not this time round again going towards the elections next year. There's been what the government describes of as bandits have driven hundreds of head of cattle into those areas, but Other than that they are burning down homes and kicking people out and the height I think of the brilliant activity yesterday that they confronted some police reservists, and there was actually a data and shoot out when they Tried to burn down the school, too, especially burned down before they were driven out by the joint security forces were not conducted An operation in an area in the area and our members of parliament are asking the government to be a bit more decisive this time round in dealing with where vice perpetrating this If you're hurting illegally, it's hardly a subtle form of breaking the law. Is it if you're driving your Cattle into an uninhabited area. It's interesting you use the word squatters. I mean, that's a very evocative word in Kenya, isn't it? It goes back to the the objections to colonial expropriation of land people being thrown out. Would historians say that that's what's at the back of this that they've never resolved the land ownership issues that go all the way back in time. That would arguably be the crux of the matter ever since independence. When you know the colonialists love the country in much of Kenya was expected that the government would hand over this land. Back to the people from whom it was taken. But then what happened is that the same government took this land and, you know, dished it out amongst what people would call the political class and some of their cronies and even some companies. But I love that they're now huge concerns that these have now been used for political capital in 2017. The locals, especially the similar kickback Conservancy, where also there's this kind of clash was saying that politicians now used this First of all by trying to, you know, promised voters that they will get them access that land, or secondly, they look at certain individuals or communities who feel will vote against them. And drive them out. It is instructive to note that this time around even the interior Security minister, I said that some of the cattle in those land belong to politicians. And even you know, public servants. And if you have hundreds of cattle, that means you are very hiring public someone because you are wealthy, and that's obviously works of such concern with the government Ferdinand many thanks indeed, as ever, Ferdinand Monday on the line from Nairobi on the trouble. And, like, keep you in the various conservancies there in the uplands.
