Daily prompt: FAQs

In considering this topic I thought about someone interviewing ME and what questions I would like them to ask. I came up with some interesting questions but I will need to take some more personal time-out to think about my responses. In the meantime I thought I would share these searching questions with you ๐Ÿ™‚ and the frog!

frog1. Do you have any long-term goals/dreams for the future?

ย 2. What do you believe to be your strengths?

ย 3. Do your current strengths support your long-term goals?

ย 4. Do you need to gain more skills and knowledge to achieve your goals?

ย 5. Does your personality โ€“ who you are as a person โ€“ fit nicely with your goals?

ย 6. Do your goals conflict in any way with your friends or family members? If so, how?

ย 7. Does your current health status support you in achieving your goals?

ย 8. What will you do if you do not achieve your goals? Describe your life, as it would be, without any specific aspirations for the future. Can you live comfortably with that?

You can download the questions below and reflect on them at your leisure ๐Ÿ™‚

Please note that I am NOT a career counselor and I am just sharing my thoughts with you ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Interesting that 7 of your 8 questions specifically refer to goals ~ as someone who has no specific aspirations for the future, I would make a terrible interviewee.

    1. Do you have any long-term goals/dreams for the future?

    Not really, now. I just want to make the most of this moment.

    2. What do you believe to be your strengths?

    My ability to embrace the “what is” and “go with the flow” with a sense of humor.

    3. Do your current strengths support your long-term goals?

    Not applicable.

    4. Do you need to gain more skills and knowledge to achieve your goals?

    No ~ just keep rolling with the flow.

    5. Does your personality โ€“ who you are as a person โ€“ fit nicely with your goals?

    Yes ~ I enjoy living in the now.

    6. Do your goals conflict in any way with your friends or family members? If so, how?

    No. They are free to do as these please and I give myself the same freedom.

    7. Does your current health status support you in achieving your goals?

    As long as I am healthy enough to enjoy today, I’m good.

    8. What will you do if you do not achieve your goals? Describe your life, as it would be, without any specific aspirations for the future. Can you live comfortably with that?

    I can and do live comfortably without any specific aspirations for the future. Success, to me, involves embracing the Here and Now . . . without trying to force anything.

    • Hi Nancy, thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. I would like to be where you are at. I have the feeling that if I don’t put something in place in my life that someone else will and I will be following their goals rather than my own ๐Ÿ™‚

      • At times, friends have been “annoyed” with my decision NOT to set goals for myself ~ they feel like I should always be REACHING for something instead of being content with what I have, where I am.

        If I say my goal is “to let the path unfold before me,” they get frustrated and insist that “everyone has to have goals.”

        I just smile and say, “I don’t.” :mrgreen:

        Of course, if I hadn’t set goals earlier in life, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
