Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Actually, let's make this a bit more interesting. In addition to that: where would you like to see yourself in 5 years time? If the two answers are different, why do you think that is?

You can all thank me later when you've got your kick-ass jobs for answering these questions so effortlessly in this practice! :D

Can you describe a scenario where you demonstrated innovation?

Five years time I'd like to be well-versed as a consultant, possibly travelling to work on projects for clients worldwide. I can see the first part being a real possibility but unless I end up moving to a larger company, I'd only be travelling around the UK for on site work.

I expect to be in the same situation now as I am now. At least, in the same town, probably. Maybe even the same roommate. Who knows, though?

Where would I like to be? Closer to knowing what I really want to do with my life. As of now I have no plans. Oh, and know how to drive. That'd be nice.

This question basically indicates how much of a goal-seeker you are, and how hard you're going to work to make those goals. The more you say, while still being realistic, the better.

In 5 years, I see myself happily married, having written a bestselling, though controversial, novel (bestselling because it's controversial xD), and living a decent life with me and my beautiful wife, going on adventures, being able to relax when needed, and working on another book addressing a current social issue (like my current project). I see myself as being hardworking, yet trying to have fun, and making the most out of what life hands me.

Well, some goals would be:
  • In a job I enjoy
  • Nice flat
  • Living with my girlfriend
  • Nice income
  • Have been travelling or have travelling planned

I know they are pretty standard, but they would make me happy.

Career/education-wise, considering I'm in Year 10 now, in five years time I'd hope to be in my second or third year of medicine. (But that's just a really rough idea). Family wise, travelling wise, job wise, I'm not sure, I haven't really looked that far ahead. Probably be able to spend a but more time with my family, perhaps even move out so that might clash with the previous point, I'd be able to drive, drink (in moderation), meet someonespecial maybe? -- and have sex just really enjoy my youth years!

An author. A best-selling author. Then I'll win a Nobel Prize on awesomeness. I don't know, I have big dreams.

I'll be the same lowly person doing the same baseless activities for my own enjoyment.

I would like to see myself developing my paracosm someplace beyond my imagination.
The amount I could consistently tell off the top of my head is apparently my incentive not to materialise it.

I honestly don't know where I see myself in five years. That's half the fun of being young.

As to where I'd like to see myself, I'd like to be in a stable and committed relationship, I'd like to be either in or on track to what I want to do with my life (which is as yet not completely clear) and hopefully in England. I'd like to live in England, and for my boyfriend to be English. That's my dream :3

I see myself...I hope I'm important in the world.

However what I really will be depends on how much I really care about it.

I hope to be a musician or something and help make the world a happier place, but on how to I have no clue.

Where do I see myself?
I have no idea. xD
With the number of things i'm pursuing right now I honestly haven't the faintest. All I know is that i'll be somewhere good.

Where would I like to be?
As far as possible. Why limit yourself?
