We are constantly, as a daily endeavor, being asked to forecast the future. What will the weather be like tomorrow? Will stocks go down? And, no matter what job you may have interviewed for in the past, you were probably asked “where do you see yourself in five years”. It’s a standard question which, more often than not, provides no useful insight as to how someone will be as an employee. Occasionally it yields an interesting nugget when a person admits that they see themselves in a very far off land or that they have no life goals. Otherwise, the answers are very srandard.
Fast forward to today. First off. Notably, everyone got that answer wrong in 2015. Well, not that they got it wrong. It just was completely offbase as no one could have predicted where we are today as a society. I, myself, answered that question and I’m pretty sure I noted I saw myself leading with courage. Or something to that effect. And, indeed that part was quite true. What strange times.
Second. If you are asked today where do you see yourself in five years, how do you answer? Think about it. Can you see through and past this pandemic? Do you see the past? I see travel. I see new adventures. And, I still see myself in a mask.
