Plan Your Perfect Day and We'll Tell You Where You'll Be in Five Years

The premise of this quiz is that one day in your life is going to serve as a microcosm of the bigger picture. The choices you make and the preferences you have are sure to guide us in making some assumptions about what those proclivities will lead to in the future. After all, the future is determined merely by a collection of attempts at living the best day possible along the way.

For example, if you're the kind of person who is extremely physically active and always taking on the next adventure in your life, we'll assume that this trend will continue into the future. We're guessing that you will always be the kind of person who is crossing items off your bucket list and eternally trying the next new thing that comes along. 

For you, life is not about material possessions or accolades, but gathering as many memorable experiences as you can. On the other end of that spectrum, if your ideal day consists of plenty of peace and quiet, we're guessing that you're the kind of person who is striving towards a more simple and serene lifestyle. If you are drawn to meditation, yoga and other mindful activities, then it seems clear that you are on the path that leads to a more balanced and centered life.

Imagine an ideal day in your life. We then encourage you to attempt to experience that day as often as possible over the next five years. Carpe diem.
