Where are you going?

April 14, 2015

From time to time I like to go to a cafe or restaurant, order a drink and take time to write in one of my notebooks. Besides just writing down my thoughts and ideas, I also like grab a list of interesting questions from the internet and answer those. Last weekend I stumbled upon an question that made me think for a while: “Where will I be in 5 years if I keep heading in this direction?”

Although I’m strongly believe in living in the moment and living now, I think it’s also good to stand still some time and see where you’re heading. If you keep doing what you are doing these days, where will you probably be in five years? Do you have some goals and are you actively working on them? Is what you’re doing aligned with where you want to go?

When I’m on a road trip or when I’m hiking, I don’t mind getting lost a bit, but after getting lost for a while I do like to check where I am and where I’m heading. The same with life: I love impulsive ideas and last minute plans, but it’s also good to check from time to time what direction you’re heading. Where would you like to go and how do you get there?

There are many places where you can find good questions to think about. You could start with the one I mentioned above, but if you want more, here are 15 good questions to think about your life an purpose.
