So I’m over at Ms. Monnie’s spot, as I frequently check her site for her many interesting posted questions/situations, and she asks:
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?????
Of course I posted a response. But I thought I’d bring the discussion back to my blog and elaborate much more. Personally I always advise anyone that will listen to do a 5 and 10 year plan. I think it’s the best way to keep your mind on your personal goals. A few people have stated they change their goals so there’s no point, to which my response is, duah change your goals, it’s not like it’s law binding.
I look at it this way, I can’t get where I want to go if I don’t know or lose sight of where I want to get to. My goal setting is my personal road map for attaining/aspiring tasks I want to complete, items I want to attain. And I actually re-evaluate and adjust my 5 year plan about twice a year, because of changing circumstances or adding new goals.
Without further ado I present to all to read/see my five year plan:
Ø Completing my undergraduate studies and getting my first B. S. degree in accounting.
Ø Attaining a second undergraduate degree in either finance or management or grad school for accounting or finance.
Ø Sitting for the CPA exam.
Ø New house
Ø Having my first child
Ø Paying off student loans
Ø Paying off credit card debt
Ø Traveling four times a year, one domestic and the other international and the other two long weekend getaways via car.
Ø Investing in mutual funds.
Again I must reiterate that I re-evaluate and adjust my 5 year plan about twice a year. But it’s important to me to have this road map to know what I want and stay focused.
I don't think that's a lot to tackle in 5 years, what do you think?
Peace, Blessings and Laughs
