They should have a lot of love for their work and run the extra mile to achieve their goals. The three important decisions that i-gens should take in life are what they should do, whose company should they keep and how should they proceed to achieve their goals. Original thoughts, ideas and intelligence will help you remain immortal in life. One must not always think of being a commander or a boss but also possess some kindness in heart.
