For some time now there has been a theme going on in my head.
Everyday we make decisions. Some of us make decisions on a whim and on the complete opposite side there are some that decide on calculation. Neither are wrong or right. Here is my way of calculating while being on a whim.
It’s called Future me. I call my future me, “Future Chris.”
Here recently I bought a box of Pop tarts. When I was a grade school kid I ate them all the time. My favorite is the brown cinnamon. Meaning, taste wise, my favorite.
Most of you that read these articles live here in the USA. Do you realize we live in the best country the world has ever seen? With the absolute most advancements of any race or nationality of all time?
Yet, I decided to eat Pop tarts. What the heck?
There are Jamba Juice’s everywhere, whole foods grocery and tons of farmers markets to buy from. Yet I bought absolute crap. It taste good, for sugar. Which is crap.
So this is what I do for Future me. I have looked at decisions questioning how future me is going to like it. Is future me going to be mad at current me for making dumb decisions.
Yes, Every single time.
You already know “Past me.” Maybe you used to hang out with me. Maybe you just met me a week ago on SnapChat. Past me can’t fix today’s me. Only I, today, can fix the future for me.
This is why I won’t do any debt on anything. This is now the reasoning for why I don’t hang out with negative people. None of that does any good for Future me.
So ask yourself, what can I do today that future me will be excited about?
(Future me can even be as short as just a couple of hours from when I am making a decision.) and (Present me is sorry I didn’t post this yesterday)
