What will you do in the next five years?

People have their dreams and obsessions. A dream will always be a dream if we don't set up ourself to achieve it in a stated time. For example, I dream that I will be a young fashion entrepreneur in five years. This will help me focused on my dream that must be achieved, at least, in five years.
Nah, have you thought about your future? Have you dreamed and been ready to set yourself on fire to get it?

      Nov 25 2011: Sorry, but in my opinion, we have to set a goal in two ways, not only for short-term, but for the long-term also. First one is goal that we must reach at least at one - two years or we can called it as "short-term goal", and the second one is a goal that we must reach at least 5-10 years later, and we can called it "long-term goal" .

      We can use our long term goal to be based for our short term goal. Thus, from the long term goal, we can predict what we could get in the future, and just like the thread starter said, "This will help me focused on my dream that must be achieved, at least, in five years". Yap, we can focusing for what we could get in the future from the long-term goal target. It is not just about dreaming and waiting like you said, but its all about make planning - preparing - and take action earlier to get our goal in the future ahead.

      Cheers,
      Andra

        Nov 25 2011: I agree with you. My short team goal is, yah, to finish my freshmen semester well, at least GPA 3.5 is less. hahaha. and it's kinda challenging. eventhough the short term goal won't be my prior in future, it must be challenging to keep us on fire. and I hope that it will lead us to the long term goal. :)

      Nov 25 2011: I'm not only dreaming, Mohammad. I'm trying to achieve my goals, too. That's why I go to Airlangga University almost everyday and get lectures. Okay, perhaps I'm in a not really suitable place, I want to be a young fashion entrepreneur. I should be in Lasalle or somewhere, but I think there's no less to learn business, too in management batch.
      And I keep thinking and focusing in my goals. The lectures will be such a help in being an entrepreneur, but I'm also able to create my fashion designs in daily and not in formal way.

      And how about you?
