December 21 Future self.
Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)
My 2015 self is going to tell my 2011 self to believe in yourself, leverage your friends, try something (anything) new to get your next job/biz going, get your LLC going dammit, embrace change because there’s gonna be a lot of it, and trust your wife. Always trust your wife.
My 2010 self is going to tell my 2000 self to PAY OFF YOUR CREDIT CARD DEBT AND SAVE UP GOTDAMMIT before you go blowing that money from your first real job. A Jeep Grand Cherokee isn’t the wisest choice of car, as much as you’re gonna love driving it. Go ahead and take that severance package and blow it on that road trip, but have a plan for afterward, fer chrissake. And don’t let anyone tell you that who you are is not good enough. Do you.
For the month of December, I’m participating in a project called #reverb10. You can read the creation story yourself; the short version is that it’s a month-long exercise in reflecting on the year and manifesting what you want for next year. There’s a daily prompt to which you respond as you see fit. View all my #reverb10 posts.
