What about in 30 years?

When I left the company where I was for the one where I am now, I had a long discussion with the Chief technology officer. He is an extremely brilliant person, whom I admire and respect very much.

At one point in our conversation, he asked me this:

Where do you see yourself in five years, doing what?

To which I replied that I see myself probably in the WordPress ecosystem (mainly), in a engineering role.

So he asked me:

What about in 30 years?

To which I was unable to give a precise answer.

The truth is, I can’t say exactly what I’ll be doing (or maybe what I want to do) in 30 years.

I just know that in less than a year, my aspirations in terms of professional role have changed a lot. Very much actually.

Every day that passes, I understand the true meaning and scope of the question he asked me that day.

But, whatever I’ll be doing, I hope (and I will do everything ) that it will be something I love, and that I am happy and fulfilled in doing it.
