My Five-Year Plan

Time flies, and as I’m about to turn 31, I’ve been working on my five-year plan. This is a good way to visualise where and how you want to be in five years time.

Since I don’t have a partner or children—and I have no intention of changing this in the near future—I’ve basically focused on work, leisure and health, though you never know what can happen!

So this is my plan for the next five years.

Year 1 (31yo)

Buy a flat.

Get the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) certificate.

Grow my blog. Write as much as possible. Monetize it.

Start an online business.

Save money for future trips.

Cut down on coffee.

Go on holiday to London with David.

Blogging & Coffee

Year 2 (32yo)

Get the CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) certificate.

Learn to speak Italian.

Keep growing my blog.

Grow my online business.

Go on holiday to Cornwall with my brother.

Quit smoking.

Updated 29 Dec 2017:

Go on holiday to Ireland with David. This is actually going to happen in February, on my birthday! I’m really looking forward to it.


Year 3 (33yo)

Start a novel.

Keep growing my blog.

Keep growing my business.

Learn to speak French.

Go on holiday to Ireland. (As I’ve just said above, this is going to happen in 2018.)

Year 4 (34yo)

Keep growing my business.

Go on holiday to Czech Republic.

Year 5 (35yo)

As you can see, my five-year plan is quite simple. But this doesn’t mean it doesn’t require much work, on the contrary!

I hope you liked it! And you, where do you see yourself in 5 years?
