The Difference a Decade Can Make

Posted on 8 January, 2020 at 8:10


"We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten.

Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction."   

Bill Gates


If you are making plans for where you want to be in ten years time, the best way can be to start by looking back.


It is so easy to defeat yourself before you even start out. You have a great idea for a project, for your life, but because you can’t see it happening in the immediate future, you take your foot off the pedal or throw in the towel completely.


But what would happen if you dug in for the long term? As Bill Gates says, we underestimate what we can achieve in 10 years. (Indeed, I have seen people put together a 10 year plan and see it fulfilled within year 7 or 8.)


Looking back in my own life, a decade ago I was a year into my new business. (Just 18 months prior to that, self employment hadn’t even been on my radar!). In the last 10 years, I worked with an amazing array of clients around the world, created collaborations with great organisations, become a public speaker, created videos and written a book!


Frankly, if the me of today had gone back in time to the me of 10 years ago and painted a picture of my life now, the ‘old’ me would have thought, “This is going to be worse than I thought - she is obviously on medication.”!  


There was no way the me of 10 years ago could have foreseen all the brilliant and wonderful things that were going to open up for me. However, I sat down with a coach and started creating my own possible future, rather than just hoping it would all get better.


So, where will you be in 10 years’ time?
