“5 year plan”
I try to create a timeline for my life. Markers I see as important events that I need to reach by a particular point. Last week I sat down and worked on my five year plan. Things which I hope to accomplish by 2010…ok, really its not that far from now…actually it’s something like five years. People may think it foolish to create something that guides your life, but I think it’s a great idea. My plan is a tool that helps me keep focused on where I want to go and what I need to do to be the person I hope to be. Five years from today I will be 29, there it’s out in the open, five years from now I will be approaching 30 and hoping that I am in a place where a child can be a part of my life.
So, my advice to you is this: take a day, or two, and think about your life and where you want to be. Take a moment to write it down and think of the steps you need to take to get to where you want to be. If you’re like me you may be so inclined to set a timeline, but it’s not a must. You’ll have your goals on paper, as will I and maybe we can work together in getting to the end results.
