One of my friends gave me this advice. Travel five years forward and look back at where you are right now… what advice do you give yourself?
Do you tell yourself to keep going down the rugged path you are walking on? Do you tell yourself to quit doing whatever it is you are doing because it is wasting time and it’s stealing your life? There are a hundred things that you might say to yourself if you had the advantage of hindsight. “Don’t be a dick and talk to that girl”… might even be one of them.
At some stage today “my in five years self” is going to sit down and write me a message, then I’m going to read it, put it in an envelope and see if I agree with it in five years time.
