Plans for the future

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” The question dreaded by pretty much every high school graduate. “I don’t know, go to a good college perhaps?”

“What do you want to do for a living?” The question dreaded by pretty much every college graduate. “I don’t know, go find a good job at a reputable company perhaps?”

“What are your plans for the future?” The question dreaded by pretty much everyone. “I don’t know, go to school, get a degree, find a good job, buy a house/car, get married and have kids, keep working until I retire at whatever-the-retirement-age-is and die a peaceful death perhaps?”

There’s that old saying. Live your own life, not someone else’s. But to live your own life, you have to know what you want. You have to know what kind of life you want to live and that’s often the hardest part. What do you really want? What are your plans for the future?

Until you figure that out, chances are, you will be living someone else’s life. Without knowing where you want to go, it’s impossible to plan how you want to get there. So let me ask you again, what are your plans for the future?
