Now, briefly address these same topics with your future self in mind. What challenges will you face in getting to this new future self? How will you get there? Consider how you can use one (or more) of the 10 Skills to help overcome obstacles you may face. To refresh, the topics are:
- Describe your future ideal self to others. Be specific and explain why.
- Describe your future ideal self to yourself. Be specific and explain why.
- Describe how you think others might define you in the future. Be specific and explain why.
For example (first bullet point): Right now, I describe myself to others as being kind and trustworthy. In the future, I’d like to be able to describe myself as the person at work that people go to first to get the job done—and to get the job done well. My biggest obstacle to getting here is knowledge. I need to expand my skills and the best way to do that is by being more agile and using innovation to attack problems in new ways.
