Do you have a 10 year plan?

I recently asked my best friends this question; “Where will you be in 10 years time?”

These are some of the answers I received:

Nneka: Ah, in 10 years? I’d be on a vacation riding horses and playing with sand in Dubai o.

Tunji:I’d be planning to retire. I’d have bought a house near my office (which I’d have also bought) and I’d be living a simple life.

Funke:Omo, I’d have taken this my hair business to another level. I’ll own a big store for all things related to hair.

There’s something similar about Nneka, Tunji & Funke’s answers. In 10 years, they want to have grown a lot and making the most of their lives.

This conversation inspired me to think about my life. In 10 years, where do I want to be? 

I finally figured it out, so I decided to share it with you today.
In 10 years, I want to look back at the key decisions I made today and be proud of them. 

From the small things like choosing water over soda, to the more important things like taking courses to make sure I’m constantly growing my skills and making smart money choices.

Speaking of smart money choices, I need to make sure that I’m spending wisely and investing money above inflation.

Inflation shows how much the cost of items will increase in a year’s time. Nigeria’s current inflation rate is 12.56%, so I need to make sure any investment plans I’m creating pay me higher interest than that.

I’ve already started . Last week was my salary week, and normal Cynthia would have started ordering all the things I’ve saved on Instagram as soon as the money hit. But instead, I decided to create an investment plan and earn 15.5% interest. I’m so proud of myself! 

Anyway, enough about me. It’s your turn now.

Where will you be in 10 years time?
