How much can you do in five years?

Five years…what can you accomplish in five years?  Built a company? Move countries? Change your life?

Five year ago I decided to come back to my childhood dream. I was going make clothes. I believed I could make a leap.

Living in London made me feel like I could do anything. I didn’t need any formal training, Central St Martin’s degree or any validation. I had ideas and I needed knowledge how to execute.

I bought a course packed full of step by step instructions. How to source fabric, how to work with contractor, how to run a fashion business.  I went through it diligently.  I took a three months evening course in design and I loved it. What did I do when the courses ended?

Nothing. Nada. Not a thing.

I still try to answer myself why and I really don’t know. Maybe because the further I went into my current business, the more difficult it was to back away?

I keep thinking where would I be if I started five year ago. Now that I experienced for myself how much I’d accomplished in five years,  I wish I had started taking small steps then. I could be so, so far by now.

The question is, where do I want to be in five years from now on?
