what do you plan on doing/achieving in the next five years?
Do my A levels next academic year (I'm currently in Y12), and preferably get 4 A*s (A levels are Maths, Further Maths, Economics & Physics, I'm also doing an EPQ but I'm not so concerned about that). Then go to university at either LSE or Cambridge (although I'm still deciding which of the two Oxbridge universities I want to apply to so it might be Oxford instead), to study either Economics or Finance, and from then on I'm slightly less sure, maybe I'll do a joint masters degree in Economics & Finance, or maybe I'll just try to go straight on to employment (I'm still trying to figure out exactly what sector I want to go into but probably Investment banking or something similar, so I probably will want a masters degree), but this pretty much covers my plan for the next five years.

Obviously, I am not omnipotent and cannot predict the future and there is a huge amount of things that could change but this is what I've wanted to do roughly since the end of Y10 (but a few changes have been made even since then). So yeah, this is my plan for the next 5 years of my life. How about you OP?

How can you not plan ahead? I don't know about you but I personally cannot stand leaving things to chance, but maybe I'm just weirdly obsessed with planning things? Obviously, I accept that it's impossible to plan that far ahead accurately (as so many things change, and that is a huge understatement). I suppose it depends on what point you're at in your life?

I just roll with it and see what comes of it, I'm in a relatively stable job.

GL, I know it is extremely competitive to get a full time academic pos in the humanities.

That would make sense for your position I suppose. I'm in Y12 at the moment, so I've got a plan pretty much for the next 10 years of my life (although, obviously as I said previously, this is likely to change at least slightly, although I'm pretty certain of my plan for the next 4 years, beyond that is a bit harder though), but I suppose I'm at a point in my life when planning ahead is crucial, whereas you're in quite a good position to 'roll with it'. Good luck

I never had a plan, I had ideas of the kind of things I wanted to be doing but that was it. I took every opportunity that presented itself and just followed it till I wanted a new challenge then did the next thing.
