9. Your feelings on ageism
Paul: When you’re older than other people, the younger generation treat you like you’re an idiot. I’m only thirty-three, yet the young guys in the club treat me like I’m fifty-five and ready for retirement. The new nurses coming out of the university courses think that you know nothing, and all my experience accounts for little. I think an older head and experience count for a lot.
Andrew: Really? When you’re the youngest CEO in your field, the older generation treat you like you’re an idiot. They think experience is the only thing that counts, and new ideas and new practices are all going to fail because it wasn’t done that way back in the eighties. They have little appreciation for anyone who is younger than them.
