Are you were you thought you'd be 16 years ago?
Great question - I'm still working on the answer.
I put the question back to her and also asked if I am where she thought I'd be 16 years ago. Her answer really surprised me - "No. I thought you'd be back practicing architecture by now."
That gave me even more to ponder - so now it's your turn.
Think back 16 years ago - it was 1993 - today are you where you thought you'd be then?
