Nope. Life has a tendency to stomp all over any plans I make.

So true.

Sigh. Yeah.

Hahahaha! I barely have a "make it through the week" plan!

My 5 year plan is to hang on until I can get on Medicare if it is still out there, and then coast until I can retire.

What the hell for?
It has been my experience that life laughs at 5-year plans.
Then, it fucks them.

@Quazi Congratulations. Good luck with all that.
Perhaps, as you get older, you will not have to change your plans and ideals to accommodate reality.

Well, sort of... The plan is to be retired from the current job and then to know where I'll be moving, somewhere away from rural GA

I find life changes too fast for long term plans other than in a broad sense. I focus on building general capabilities: fitness, learn new things, acquire new skills.

A plan with built in flexibility , Excellent !

@Cast1es Think anti-fragile a la Nassim Taleb.

I don't have a five day plan.

I have been retired for over 23 year and live one day at a time. I do plan for some travel and camping experiences but rarely more than 1 month in advance.

I'm currently living my last 5 year plan. My new 5 year plan is to own a boat. Best part is that I'll be 41yo in 5 years, so everyone will think it's a midlife crisis.

More like a 21 foot rule...

I wonder how many people will actually understand that reference.

Learn from the past plan for the future but live for today

2

Yeah, not to make any 5 year plans!

2

Absolutely

Yes...in fact, I have a chart where I keep short-term through long-term goals and I update it monthly as things progress to account for variables an unseen changes. Everyone needs a roadmap to follow or they are just wandering aimlessly.

Why you asking?

@Quazi I have to handle to you you just invented the word "procrsatinate". Make sure is added to wikipedia.

@Quazi your post response was Edited. Bottom left corner... so YOU DO KNOW WHAT I MEAN. Ha, ha, he, ha.

Not really a five year plan, but I would like to stay employed until I decide it’s time to retire.

Kind of. Circumstances change, plans change. Some people say, "Live like you'll die tomorrow." That's a crock of shit. But something closer to, "Live like you'll die in 10 years" suits me for the time being.

2

I have a plan, but it's still open to change as well, life is what happens while busy making plans.

2

Mmmhhh..... I'll tell you in 5 years what the plan was....

2

I've had a few of those in my lifetime. They all went to shit.

@Quazi

You really have time for that??

Actually, I have a one-year plan with next April as a rough deadline. In that time I would like to meet goals professional (more income), personal (at least casual dating), and creative (acting & performing on a regular basis). I do intend next spring to assess my progress per these stated goals and formulate subsequent yearly plans, and possibly establish goals to achieve by my next landmark birthday, four-plus years from now. I didn't always make these plans, but this year I believed it necessary to take definitive and quantifiable actions to truly live the life I want.

I don't even have a five day plan

I don't even buy green bananas any more.

Hey that's MY line LOL
