This question occurred to me as I scrolled through the calendar when I accidentally clicked on the computer clock.

Five years may sound quite far away, but time flies. In five years time, I hope to own a few shares in various pharmacy outlets and start on my PhD program if finance and time permit.

How about you? :clap

You accidentally clicked the clock then started flicking through the calendar anyway? :lol:
In 5 years I'll be flying a gold helicopter

5 years ago I was self-employed on the computer all day. Still am today. 5 years time I see the same but mentally I don't think I want to do this anymore :badpc:

New career time I think. Something that doesn't involve computers, or a desk.

Probably still biting at DeSade's trolls... Hopefully from my mega-yacht that I will have bought from having a single good idea, well-marketed. (Dreams are free - for the moment!!)

I wish I knew what my future would be in 5 years time.

After graduation I have yet to find any company that would even give me a proper interview..

So hard to find a job because noone is willing to give you any opportunity

Bad question... for us older blokes (and blokesses)

As I told my schoolkids in the van yesterday..."when you get to my age, birthdays seem to be only 6 months apart" (perception of time that is!)

Talking to kids about time is about on par with wall talking.

I hate that question. Interviewers ask it all the time, particularly job agencies.
I'll tell you - in 5 years you may not be doing or be where you thought at all.
Anything can happen and often does.

You can be cruising along, making plans how your life should be mapped out, and bang - the unexpected happens.

So, me, I haven't a clue about where/how/what I'll be doing in 5 years. Probably not what I thought I'd be. Happens all the time.......

Five years ago I was 14, in five years I'll be 24.

I have no f***ing idea.

Dont have to worry about a thing when you are young.
When i was young my priorities:
Hunting, fishing, diving, motorcycles,flying, cricket, drinking piss, rooting chicks, listening to Abba music.
I am probaly lying to myself drinking piss was number one priority ands the other fell into line I think.

That was a new one to me Cicero, but a good story nonetheless. I think I'll be leaving my dog behind though as he is much younger than me. (As are most people and their dogs) :)

In 5 years my future will be 5 years shorter, somebody will claim to have found a public benefit from the Super City fiasco, and Christchurch will be generating power by harnessing the aftershocks.

I rember as a kid being told that man would be living on the moon by the turn of the century (you remember Space 1999?) and would have walked on Mars by 1980!

When was that? 1975!

Then again a ski area in the North Island said they would be building 3 lifts over 3 years! 5 years on only one built :rolleyes:

See a pattern?

Ok in 5 years you can either do a lot or do nothing! Kids tend to slow you down....lol

hell yeah, flying is for the ultimate win. just gotta hope I can survive life without getting screwed over by failing an exam like maths. i'm (hopefully) pretty lucky as I have fall backs if flying commercial doesn't work out. either airforce, digital design in advertising or similar, computing or go work in dairy as an hydroponics engineer (big fancy word for farm plumber) all of the options are pretty viable and I have had experience in all fields. wishin I had 9 lives :rolleyes:

5hrs down, many more to go

My employers are regularly doing 'reviews' where they ask "What do you see as your next move" or the like of this threads "What do you see yourself doing in five years".

The implied message is that you have to keep striving for advancement... and in turn that they (the employers) actually care.

Despite retirement being decades away, I now, somewhat sarcastically state 'retirement' as my next career move. It would certainly be a nice career change.

Otherwise I expect in 5 years I'll be on this same chair, looking at the same screen.

Be careful though last boss I said that too just nodded, then a month later I tore my long head of bicep and was off work for 14 months having surgery and physio to recover
