There has been quite a bit of discussion lately on "The Office of the Future" -- what it will look like, how will it be different than the traditional office, will there still be an appetite for cubicles? These, of course, are all great questions if you work in an office or have in the past.

I'm here to tell you that growing up the way we did was not a long-term favor or blessed accomplishment. Let me be clear that I don't blame my parents. No, my disdain for nostalgia has more to do with cold, hard facts and unpleasant anecdotes than personal issues.

There are people in the world who, outwardly, seem to be doing quite well, and yet inwardly are living an unhappy life encumbered by stress, health problems, and family dysfunction. Conversely, there are people who are far from wealthy, yet they're joyful, at peace, and buoyed by the love they give and receive.

Over the past few weeks I have been called anti-Semitic, a Nazi lover, a self-hating Jew, a disgrace to "my people" and worse, all because I despise the war mongering, self-promoting Netanyahu and his policy of continuing to build settlements.

Typically with the passing of a year, I spend the first few hours feeling nostalgic. Facebook has their "year in review," news outlets have their "best of 2014 lists," and we all take a look back at last year's resolutions.

If you become the type of man (in financial services) who can say emotional intelligence without laughing, listening to what clients (and people) are telling you, helping them to separate the signal from the noise, you also can be a man who can think like a woman - someone who is the new fresh-faced voice of Wall Street.

Not only will these millennial inheritors likely look for a new financial advisor to manage their money, as opposed to sticking with the family advisor, they will also want to ensure their money positively impacts society, and they tend to crave intimate involvement with the causes they support. This could transform charitable giving.

He said that all he does is study and he did not laugh at any of my jokes. I asked him what his deal breaker was. "People who make a joke out of everything." I looked down at my own notecard, on which I had scrawled, "People who take life too seriously. And mouth breathers."
