What are you going to remember in five years?

“What are you going to remember in five years? Do that.” – Louise Minor

When I was in grad school there was an opportunity for me to spend two weeks in Argentina. For me, a trip of a lifetime!

I was hesitant in going. The trip was right at the end of the semester and I was in the throws of finals. In order to go on the trip I would have to miss my classes and final presentation. This may not seem like a big deal, but for me at the time it was a huge decision.

One day after class I shared the dilemma with my professor. Without skipping a beat, she said, “Gina, what are you going to remember in five years? Going to your last class or spending two unforgettable weeks in Argentina?” Needless to say I went to Argentina.

That trip to Argentina was life changing. Literally. During that trip I was inspired to write my business plan that would soon launch the company of my dreams. Little did I know how soon. Three weeks after returning to the States I was laid off and decided to launch my business…one of the best decisions of my life.

What are you going to remember in five years? This is now a question I ask myself with every big decision that comes my way. My response has never steered me wrong. And every time there’s an opportunity to ask myself that question I always know an unforgettable adventure is on its way!

So ModWoman, what are you going to remember in five years? Do that.
