Staying in the present moment makes a lot of sense these days. The world is facing many unknowns and uncertainties. At the same time, however, it makes sense to give some thought to what is to come. Here are some questions you can answer to start positioning yourself well for the long run:
• Look out a few years from now regarding your current work. How does the future look? Do you anticipate changes or does it look like things will stay the same? Do you see yourself doing the same work then as you are doing now?
• What opportunities do you see becoming available to you now or in the near future? Could they lead you in a new direction? Is that new direction one you want to prepare for or explore?
• Is there a skill you have wanted to develop but have not had time to in the past? Would that skill position you well for a job that has a future?
• Is there a dream you have had that you can start pursuing now because the time seems right to do what you have to to make it come true?
Long range vision makes for happy futures. Take some time now to look towards the future and make it the best it can be.
