It's hard for Boomers and subsequent gioeratenns to conduct themselves like the Greatest Generation without the same crucible of events and cultural drivers that enabled that generation to endure the privations of The Depression and then WWII. That environment created striking attitudinal differences:-They took personal responsibility without regarding themselves as victims.-They were humble; doing what was expected of them. But they never talked about it as this was part of the Code.-They believed in commitment.-There was a belief in hard work. The Depression taught them this, to not give up until the objective was accomplished. Today some shirk challenge and difficult pursuits, believing the easier it is, the happier they’ll be.-They didn’t think about how to get things done with countless studies and analysis. They just did it.
