a friend asked me a couple of days ago if i have a five year plan.
yesterday while sitting at the hospital with a friend whose father might not make it, i asked myself about my five year plan again.
are we talking a financial plan? or an emotional plan? a life plan? and how far can we plan before life sets in?
if life functioned in five year slots and then we had to stop and reassess, i just crossed my five year mark after graduation this last december. i got to wondering what have i done in the last five years that i could have said i had planned to do that winter morning in dec 1999 when i threw my cap nhigh up in the air as come kind of cosmic symbol to how high up in life i want to be? what have i done that i would mark off my checklist? do i even have a checklist? and as i get ready for another day, i think of the lunch im going to have with mariam, my coffee one on one with asad, and the unilever deadline i have to meet tomorrow and i realize, i may not have a plan for the next 5 years, but atleast i know what i plan to do with the rest of the day. have a nice one, everyone.
