Having a 5 year plan is important as it gives you purpose & direction. Remember, knowing you have a plan doesn’t mean that you can’t change it!
I was recently asked the question, “What will your business card say in 5 years?” Now is that a thought provoking question or what? It’s a loaded question for sure!
It brings up all sorts of other questions like:
- What’s important to you?
- What’s your passion?
- What role do you want to play?
- What work-life balance do you want to have?
- What direction do you want to take?
- Are you currently heading in the right direction?
I’m still working through this one and don’t think I will have my future business cards laminated any day soon as think this is a question I will visit often. I’m putting the question back out to you as I think it brings up a concrete goal and target to shape your planning. I hope it’s as thought provoking for you as it was for me!
