What makes today's young professionals different than previous generations?

For the past decade at least, Americans have been subject to variations of "40 is the new 30." A mantra that is supposed to allow older people to do the things that had previously been relegated to younger people, either because their bodies were more capable, or society looked at those activities as within the province of youth.

There has been a general acceptance that in many ways, our idea of what it is to be 40-meaning both what is possible and what is acceptable-needs to change.
