ten years from now - what would you be
7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Well, I really love the theme because I really love the book itself. I even rewrite with my own words about the 7 Habits. But then, if someone ask meΒ about what I would be in ten years from now… It would be hard, for now.

Because lately I had been forgetting about planning and making goals of my own life. I just let it flow.

Setting Goals for Ten Years From Now

Is it okay to live without goals in our life? Are goals of life really needed? Do we have to setting goals? Or just let it flow – day by day, month to month and years gone by? Well, according to Stephen R. Covey it is not okay.

We have to set the figure of what we would become in the future. It is like when we do travel, we have to know where we are going to. So our travel will maximize. We also have to know every detail of what we are going to and what to do each day on that travel.

Imagine if you go to some place new and you don’t know anything about it and what to do. You would be lost in translation at the end.

What Do You See In Ten Years Ahead

Arghhh… I really get headache nowadays if someone ask me this question. I remember how I used to planned everything and having the end of mind vision. If you ask this question right after I graduated from high school, I can give you the answer instantly.

I want to get a scholarship and working at the biggest bank in Indonesia (at that time)

And yes, even though I had to work for one year after graduation, I did get that scholarship and working at that bank for about 3 years.

Then, when I was interviewed at that time, I said: “I would be a manager in 5 years from now” quickly. That was then.

Now… if you ask me the same question, what would I do in ten years from now, I would say:

I had no idea :'(

Not the best answer and the proper one, but that is the reality.Β 

At the End…

Well, at the end, I really need to reconciling with myself to know what I really need to do in life. What would I be in ten years from now and really need to put the details on that. Hopefully I won’t be OMDO (NATO – No Action Talk Only) for this one. *pray*

  1. Saya juga aliran the law of attraction *maaf nyamber komen Gara :p
    makanya dlm bbrp tulisan sy sisipkan “aliran” itu, bahwa apa yg kita pikirkan, tuliskan, sampaikan, itu semua adalah doa..
    boleh banget ditulis (oleh Gara / Ryan) kl emang blm pernah ditulis πŸ˜€

  2. Amiinn Thanks Yan.
    Coba lihat di Youtube deh, DisTro pernah ada di Sarasehan Show berrsama Mamanya dan menjelaskan bagaimana Mama Distro mendidik dia sejak umur 8 tahun untuk membuat goal 10 tahun kedepan. Inspiratif banget ceritanya.

  3. Aku komen pakai bahasa Indonesia aja ya. Males mikir jam 12 malam soalnya haha. Judul postingan ini langsung mengingatkanku ke Dian Sastrowardoyo yang sudah diarahkan ibunya untuk membuat tujuan dan rencana hidup dalam 10 tahun kedepan saat dia usia 9 atau 10 tahun, lupa tepatnya. Tahu cerita ini sewaktu dia jadi pemenang gadis sampul. Dan sejak saat itu, aku ikut2an bikin rencana hidup detail. Itu sangat menolong sekali supaya kita tetap pada track yang diinginkan, meskipun ya ada beberapa hal yang tidak terduga yang sering melenceng. Tapi setidaknya dengan membuat rencana hidup dan tujuan yang jelas, melencengnya ga terlalu jauh.
    Semoga rencana dan tujuan hidup apapun yang sudah kamu susun bisa terwujud sesuai target waktu yang ditetapkan πŸ™‚

    1. Wahhh. Disas sudah sejak umur 9?
      Memang bener sih ya Den. Stdknya ada arah tujuan. Jadi gak melenceng ke kanan kiri gt yak.
      Amin Den. Moga rencanamu juga tercapai

  4. Not the usual optimism like I’ve seen from you, Mas, but even though all that, there must be a time when someone retracts and think, how my life should be, and I think you’re in that phase now. Just take your time, but don’t get too long–however the clock still ticks *ngomong apa saya ini*.
    And don’t forget about the law of attraction :haha. Maybe you could make it as your next post?

  5. Well – well, 10 years is really seemed as a veryblong time span. But is it really? Lemme think about it first by reflecting to the 10 years back. πŸ˜€

      1. That is why. To see ten years from now in the future I need to reflect to ten years back in my life. It will give me a glimpse on how my plan should be.

    1. Yayy I am not alone (should we be happy for this? LoL).
      Let’s imagine us in 10 years ahead Egi… btw, how r u doing? Been a while since seeing you here.
