I’ve always been good at making goals for the future. They start with dreams, then you whittle them down. I remember as a kid I always wanted to be a doctor, do you remember your dream occupation? I never pursued being a doctor because as I got older I saw blood and open heart surgery on PBS. That got me away from that dream pretty fast. There’s talk of a “5 year plan” in job interviews. Coaches and bosses want to know yours. In my teens, I imagined my 20’s as all about rock n roll. The next decade it was college degrees and teaching at a university. After that the reality of teaching elementary school took hold and I;ve done it ever since. I’m still making imagined “5 year plans,” are you? I think I will until the 5 year mark is starting to be on the other side. I wonder what my 5 year plan will be like then.
