One of the most often questions I remember being asked in interviews is “Where do you want to be in 5 or 10 years?” Great question to think about but maybe not so great for an interview. Am I supposed to say I still want to be with the company with which I am interviewing for? Maybe I don’t know if that will be the case?
Each of us have the liberty to adjust our direction in life whenever we choose. We are free to “drive” our own journey as we go through life. Different experiences we have tend to inspire a potential change in direction, whether it’s a slight adjustment or a complete 180.
This was definitely not my mindset when I was growing up. I went along in life basically trying to fulfill expectations others had of me. It wasn’t wrong. The expectations were achievable but there was more of life to be lived.
Rich Mullins said it this way
“So go out and live real good and I promise you’ll get beat up real bad. But, in a little while after you’re dead, you’ll be rotted away anyway. It’s not gonna matter if you have a few scars. It will matter if you didn’t live.”
I want to encourage you to “Drive Your Journey” and seek out new opportunities as you go through life.
