It’s wise to check in regularly with your future self. Have a conversation with the person you hope you’re becoming. Solomon put it this way: ‘Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you.’ (Proverbs 4:25 – http://bit.ly/2GNBhZn)
What does future-you hope for from current-you? What decisions are you faced with now that will impact future-you? It’s possible you might need to say no to your current self, now and then, so that you can say the best yes to your future self. Your future self will be telling stories of what your current self is doing. What do you want those stories to be?
