One way to get to know someone is to asks about his aspirations.
What would you like to do with your life? is the question I fear the most when meeting new people (that ask that kind of questions), because I simply don't have an easy answer.
So far I can tell three things about me, that might help you understand why.
I'm a generalist (like everyone else?), which sounds great until you realize it is actually a burden. One might think that a generalist can contribute everywhere, but in reality you never end up fitting anywhere. It's easy to wander. My life is a constant struggle to keep a goal, discipline myself and take baby steps towards somewhere.
I don't fear learning whatever is needed to assert the success of a project. Indeed, I love to learn.
My tombstone will say 1:
Intenté hacer de este mundo un paraíso para todos y terminé creando un infierno para mí solo.
