Taking a Hard Look at Your Future Self

Most people spend time envisioning where they will be 1 year, 5 years or 10 years from now. We envision our future self richer, happier, and healthier. The choices you make today can greatly impact if your vision of your future self comes to fruition. What you choose to do today will surely impact your tomorrow.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s not an optimistic version of your future or a pessimistic version of where you’re headed, but instead it’s as realistic as you can possibly make it.
  • I spend money foolishly right now, it might be fun in the moment, but I’ll forget it in short order
  • If I choose to waste time instead of doing productive things, or even if I do nothing more than just completing my work tasks and never step beyond those immediate tasks, I’ll never build the skills and reputation I need to move my career to a good place

““Future self” is pretty much exactly what you think it is: It’s you at some point in the future.”
