Veronica is my evil, Tarot reading twin and she’s one sick puppy. She abhors the idea of saving for retirement, thinks university is for suckers and goes braless to Jazzercise class. Good God, we are such opposites! But I love her so much…
Are you planning for the future?
It’s not good for you. Seriously. Leave that kind of stuff to people who are dead on the inside.
Possibly the stupidest question I’ve ever been asked is “where do you see yourself in five years?”
I’m still trying to think of the most offensive way to answer that one!
If you’ve ever found yourself worrying about RSPs, your health 20 years from now, dying alone, your career trajectory or pumping out spawn, take heart. You are not alone.
And this is the only thing that sets us apart from wild animals! Rwawar!
But don’t put a bunch of importance on your future.
Plan for it in the same way you might plan to make a little extra stir-fry for dinner tonight so you can have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Or how you might wax your crack before a hot date….just in case!
In other words, don’t make “planning for the future” your life’s work, but consider how it could make your life a bit easier.
Now tell me….what is your stupidest answer to the stupidest question: “where you do see yourself in five years?”
