Where are you going to be in five years?
I personally don’t know where I am going to be five minutes from now. The idea of knowing where I will be in five years isn’t something that I think about a whole lot. I mean, yes I have long-term goals. Move into a slightly larger place, where my dining area consists of more than a tray on the bed. Where I can have people over for game nights and laughter can fill my home until the wee hours of the morning. I would love to see myself continue to he happy, and healthy and making smart choices in regards to what I eat and the activities that I engage in.
So how do I go about starting to plan for my future? Well readers… I was at the local bookstore searching out a book to read and help me start my New Year right, with a challenge to myself and I found something unexpected.
I didn’t go looking for this book. In fact I didn’t even know it existed! I grabbed it off the recently reduced shelf and started flipping through the pages. The book is broken up into 5 parts. Emotional and Physical Health, Family and Relationships, Home and Community, Work and School, and Here I am Again, Building on my Own Experience Up Until Now.
It seems like a pretty awesome way to guide myself into looking at my future in a more concrete light. It asks you for specifics, measurable and attainable goals. Plus, it is a hardcover book that you write in… that always makes me feel like a rebel! ~dun dun breakin the law breakin the law dun dun~
So after only a few moments of deliberation I knew I needed to have this book and that it was meant for me. Afterall part of this years #DoD was that I am writing in my 5-year journal. One entry in my paper journal everyday, even if it isn’t anything particularly meaningful. Observations, quotes, thoughts, it all counts. I looked at the shelf space where I had taken the book from and saw there was one copy remaining and decided that I wanted to share this book with someone else.
That is where you come in! Do you have a 5 year plan? Is it written down? Are you interested in setting yourself up for success in the next 5 years? I can’t guarantee that it will work for you, but we could do it together! So I am giving you the chance to win my second copy of this book.
