What Do You Wanna Be When You Grow Up?

When my teenagers were younger, I would often ask them this question and then I would ask their friends.  The answers were amazing.  I continued to ask them as they got older and the answers generally got better, more detailed.  They were full of hope and promise.  They were invincible.

I’ve asked this questions to my colleagues.  Their answers aren’t generally as exciting and usually lacking in the hope department.  When did we stop dreaming?  When did we lose that dream we had as a five-year old?

Don’t ever stop dreaming.  Make a list of goals.  Create a personal development plan.  Capture that magic you had as a five-year old!  Enjoy!
