Two questions

My mind was boggled to hear the two questions I was asked yesterday.

‘Who are you? ’ and ‘where will you be five years down the line?’

Is that so easy to know and explain who you are? No clue..

Is life so very predictable that one can easily know where s/he would be after five years? Are we actually suppose to plan so much in advance?

Hmmm..
'Who are you? ’

Myself Mahesh and blah blah..
and

‘where will you be five years down the line?’

Most probably on earth, no doubt in that.

I donnno yaar...its not that easy i know but one will get at least a vague idea of what your plans are..

Its a management question you have categorised under philosophical section.. :-)

Life is not predictable and i m sure the person was not asking u to predict.
why u think that person was asking u to predict?????
may be he or she was asking u to set some goals or priorities?
Get some positive thinking

Dear anonymous: Thanks for dropping in. Is it really not about prediction? I don’t know. But this post for sure is not about who asked or for that matter his intention about asking… simply these thoughts came to my mind and I chose to write. (Why this anonymity :-))

off course these are thougts.
and i m sure its really not about prediction
how can any one ask anyone to predict
if some one is asking it must be a light moment
where people get together and hav some fun by talking about things.
any ways
so are u going to write about rain some day
i know ur answer is
"if i feel like"
ok
but u need to feel like
rain is fun, prosperity, life.....and rain is this and that
lack of words actully
and u have a lot of words
this is the difference in u and me
thats why i m asking to change gears. change ur mode.

anonymity is must for me i m a superhero.
and as u know superheroes never tell their names

Whats in a name???

why did not you slap the person who asked this? or at least throw your footwear on him/her?

don't let these 'Q's boggle your mind unnecessarily?

ஸ்வரூப்: I am a peace loving person :-) I can't be that rude at all.......

sometimes the comments about a post outgrow the post! How afraid we are all, 1. to look into oneself, 2. to admit the uncertainty of life! One can always plan, dream, predict etc about the future, but one doesn't know for sure about the next moment!

The first question is something that one should ask oneself at every possible moment - you would be surprised at the answers, never the same....

sujata said...

The questions are on many different levels, as an interview question, i feel its easy to answer as they expect a very practical and left- brained answer! but on a philosophical level the questions can remain the same and the answers vary with every phase in life that we go through. On the whole I think we can and should plan for atleast the next five years, there should be a goal and the spirit to work towards achieving it, but finally what happens remains the mystery of life.

and mystery of life can not stop u to think about future and plan.
one cant stop planning and deciding goals.
