From me to you (and to me, too): From Future You to Current You

It’s easy to give advice. I think I find it easy to take advice too.

But for me to heed the words that I say to others? Not so easy.

So this one is for both of us.

But be careful… this one might just blow your mind.

You’ve probably seen this interview question:

“What advice would you give to your younger self?”

That question is really pretty easy, because if you’re like me, you can probably come up with a (long) list of the ways you screwed up during the earlier parts of your life or… very likely… the things you wish your younger self  could have done back then, but didn’t.

How about this twist:

“What advice would your future self give to your current self?”

This one is a lot tougher but so important.

It forces us to imagine what our future self will know… who our future self will be… compared to who we are right now.

And it forces us to think about what our current self is doing now … or not doing now… that we might regret later.

Mind blown?

Think about it.

You can do it. You’ll be glad you did.

(And so will I!)

Let’s explore this some more tomorrow.

See you then!
