In 10 Years: Where Were You a Decade Ago?

Wow, what a difference a decade makes! As LinkedIn celebrates its 10-year anniversary in May, we’re taking the chance to look back on the last 10 years — and the next.  Where were you 10 years ago? How does that compare to where you are now? Where do you want to be in the next 10 years? Enter this month’s upload contest, In 10 Years, and share presentations on what 10 years has meant to you.

10-years-slideSome questions you might want to consider:

  • Where were you in your life and career 10 years ago?
  • Where did you hope to be?
  • Where do you find yourself now?
  • How have things changed in the past decade?
  • How have things not changed?
  • What do you wish you had known 10 years ago?
  • Where do you want to be in the next 10 years?

Upload your presentations by the end of May and be sure to tag them “in10years” so that we can feature them. We’ll award the person that uploads the presentation with the most number of likes a free SlideShare PRO account. Here are a few examples:

Also check out last month’s Things I Carry contest, which generated some great, insightful decks. Join in on the fun this month — we can’t wait to see what a difference 10 years makes!

    10 years ago I was worried about where I would be the next month; now I take each week as it comes and feel confident that everything will work out – even if it’s not as I anticipated.
    Meanwhile, the folks in this video three years ago have developed in leaps and bounds and I can’t wait to see where they are in 10 years time.

    As a financial planner, I often work with clients in looking forward at what they might like to accomplish in the next 10 years, but we don’t often look back towards where we’ve come from. I think I’ll write a blog post about this topic! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I was working as a teacher in primery school. I was asking my self : “is that what i want?”. Ten years after i’m still teaching but in University. I finished my studies and worked many little jobs in between. I Learned a lot about life and about my self. I’m proud of what i did and i’m expecting more success in the coming ten years.

    In 2003, I was finishing a cycle of my life, retiring after 30 years of work on social security, on the other hand was starting my private practice in Occupational Medicine, in which I develop now, on a personal level, my 3 daughters married an only single male is still living in the parental home.and yes, things have changed in 10 years, although there are many good things, too bad, for example the loss of values ??of humanity, are now more materialistic, consumerism has increased, decreased respect, understanding. tolerance, people get stressed easily, women participate more in the labor sphere and the children are in the care of others, so in 10 years I want to see that humanity has regressed to morality, moral values??, do not miss the spirituality and love.make us more human

    10years back, that’s 2003.Well I were in high school preparing for my post high school exams and entrance into medical college in view too. That’s also the turning point of my life: I lost my hearing in 2003!
    But now, I have more to boast of than had I not lost my hearing for it changed the course of my life . I used to envy a prestigious lifestyle-the ”american lifestyle” as an aspiring MD graduate in 2009.
    But fortunately becoming deaf I could no longer gain access into a public profesional institution. the private ones were beyond my reach. Looking for answers to why such a misfurtune should befall me I ended up learning the Bible and becoming a devote Christian that has done more goood than I could ever had expected.
    I am a ROLE MODEL in my DEAF COMMUNITY : the 1st anglophone Deaf persont to Study at the University and maybe the 1st deaf to graduate from University in perfromance too.
    Earlier, short of genius I could not understand that to some people learning to read could be a very great obstacle but today I do, and have the opportunity to change many lives and offer my services to those who truly need them: the second class citizens as deaf people are treated here in Cameroon.
    Working as projects person with the Cameroon Deaf Empowerment Organisation-www.cdeoocrs.org and teacher of deaf children,
    I have no greater delight than to see the neglected deaf children I teach able to read in order to learn.
    A better life for Deaf children in Cameroon.

    Where do you want to be in the next 10 years?

    Hmmmn! 10 years back, I was in college. So busy with my studies, too concern about my future, giving that my parents were poor. I realy wish to make the very big difference within the large extended family. 10 years later (now), I’m still struggling with it. Though I could conveniently fend for myself having been working for almost five years, I’v not made the desired impact. My dream is too tall compare to where I am now. However, I’m moving. I’m certain that somehow, I’d find my true essence….

    10 years time, I Hope to have been a CEO of my own big ventur
