What would you the future you want you to do?
What would he or she wish you would do right now?
Watch more tv?
Eat another round of donuts?
We see our future as some far off event but really it’s happening right now.
What we do today determines who we will be tomorrow.
In a weird, mind exploding time travel movie way, we are all time travelers.
The best way to begin answering the question above is asking if you could go back in time to your past self, what would you change.
You can do that right now with your ideal future you.
From this long-term perspective, some things aren’t worth your time and some are.
Imagine what you look like in 5, 10, even 20 Years. What would a habit of working out do to your body and longevity? What would saving and investing do for your financial freedom? What would taking challenges — even though fear — do to all the place you will go because of it? What would cherishing friendships do to your happiness and peace of mind?
Your future is written in the stone of what you do each day. So what are you going to do?
