Seeing 5 Years Ahead

Sometimes I wonder why do people ask this perennial question during job interviews, "What do you see yourself doing in 5 years time?"

If someone were to ask that to all the CEO's and company presidents that I've worked for in my life, their answers would probably be wrong. Almost all of them have closed down, downsized, restrategized, or refocused their direction.

Nobody really knows in 5 years where they will be or what they will be doing. The best that anyone can come up with a plan for is 2 years.

So what can we do about it? The only thing is about being a better person and doing the best that we can do each moment.
