Your future self speaks

Here’s an exercise I found challenging.

Picture yourself in ten years. Who you are then. What skills you have. Your relationships with friends and family. What you own. What you’ve accomplished and how you spend your time.

Now, speaking as that person, that “you + 10 years,” talk about yourself (try doing it out loud):

“I am….
“I’m friends with…
“I own…
“I know how to…
“I’ve traveled to….
“I’ve built….
“My typical day involves…
“Over the last ten years I have….

I like to set long-term goals. I strive to maintain a five-decade time horizon. Still, I felt presumptuous saying out loud that I’ve already done things that I’ve only dreamed of doing.

A good workout to strengthen the audacity muscle.
