Re: INTP 5 Year Plan
"If you are trying to plan for 5 years in advance then do you actually know exactly what you want to achieve by then? Do you think you're currently on course to get that chosen career now or would be if you changed some courses?"
Ahem... Short answer, no - I don't know exactly what I hope to accomplish. Being a millionaire, world peace, traveling gypsy...
I am in school, I had a plan, the more I go on the more I see this plan being out of reach. I will run out of benefits and will not be able to finance the last few years of my original plan. I don't want to go into debt for a job, I don't want to take out excessive school loans and I cannot be tied down to a brick and mortar location.
So I am back to the drawing board, I still have three years left of educational benefits which gives me time to work on a plan.
"Something that i have learned is that you need to move, make contacts, go outside, take a breath, do more stuff, keep looking for options, go to a bar."
I move a lot, I understand the power that a change in scenery can bring. MD, PA, MA, FL, GA, MO, TX, AZ, NY and let's not talk about the places overseas... Currently I am bound by my educational responsibilities so relocating to a new school/city isn't much of an option, every time I transfer credits I lose a couple and it sucks.
I need to find a career path that will allow me to work anywhere, independently, so that in five years when my family is needing me the most I can have the freedom/mobility to do so. Does that make sense? If I had a job where I only worked in one central location it means I wouldn't be free to help my family.
