The Five-Year Plan

The following video is about adopting a five-year plan, post the two-year plan. The five-year plan allows you to self-reflect on your two-year progress and adopt a five-year plan to move you forward professionally and personally but especially financially.

Adopting and managing a five-year plan will make it easier for you to endure a ten-year plan.

The Ten-Year Plan

Creating the ten-year plan requires some sense of foresight. This means that you need to establish a vision for yourself and to exercise conscientiousness to see your future self to determine what you need to do in your present. In other words, you must begin researching who you want to become very early, even as early as in high school.

This is something we learn later. We care more about graduating with the high school diploma than planning the exit through graduation out of high school and into the workforce. In essence, we do not adopt a two-year transition plan let alone a five-year or ten-year transition plan.

Regardless, creating and maintaining a ten-year transition plan must be part of your vocabulary, especially if you are working for certain industries. Listen to this video lesson and gain insight from the case example on accounting.

The fact that you do not have a ten-year plan suggests a threat to your life planning. You do not know from day to day if you are going to make it to your future, but planning for your future is still important and necessary. When you are assessing your ten-year planning strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, always understand that you are the greatest threat to your existence. Within this context, lack of ten-year planning is an example of a threat. Plan your ten-year transition professionally, personally, and financially.

A Quote from the Film Unfaithful (2002)

Paul Vartan makes a very interesting statement in the film that I find useful for life and life planning. Listen to this video to gain insight. It is the conclusion to one of the series, but I find it important to consider here for life planning. Here is the video.

Although this video referenced dating and dating with purpose, the larger understanding about there are things that you do and there are things that you do not do still have some application to planning other areas of your life.
