I was talking to a friend of mine and he brought up the whole idea of helping our future selves. Now what this means to be more specific is when you set up something that won’t necessarily help you at that moment but when you come back to it later on it’ll be ready for you. Some examples of this could be as simple as setting up your book bag before going to bed so that when you wake up that is one less thing to worry about or when you clean up a mess that you spilled right away because it would probably get worse over time and it is saving you the hassle in the future. Sometimes we do our future selves a solid and I’m not sure about everyone else but there are times where I forgot I did something for myself and come to find it done and there’s always that split second that you stop and have to think and appreciate what we do for ourselves sometimes.
