147: Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years? [Podcast]

Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?

“Where do you see yourself in five years?” is one of the most frequently asked questions in an interview. Yet, I often wonder if your answer matters much. After all, many interviewers are just following a script.

But forget the interview and think about it for yourself. Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years? If you do not know – think about it.

Why is this important to what you do today?

Lea and I have been struggling with this question lately because there is a part of us that thinks we can just coast. Why do we have to work at anything? We are done.

But recently we have been convicted of how wrong this thinking is.
