Sometimes it is funny where you learn the most important life lessons, from a book, conversation, tv program or from a “Consulting” training course.

I attended a two day training course on “Consulting 101”. Most of the course was quite dry, but interesting on an intellectual level. I would never have thought that I would learn any home truths at the course.

But yesterday during a conversation about a topic I’ve already forgotten the trainer mentioned “People spend more time and energy planning a 4 week vacation than they do in planning their life.”

That statement rang very true for me as I know how much time and energy went into organising a small vacation yet I seem to just stumble through life with no real plan.

The exercise went on to asks us to write about where we saw ourselves in 5 years time. There was not enough time and I didn’t get a chance to write everything down so I think that I may just start planning for my future. What I want my life to look like in 2 years time.
