Your Future Drives Your Present

Your Future Drives Your Present

Goals create the constraints that guide us. Flow most easily occurs as you break big goals down to their smallest chunk.

Like a football team focuses on the individual play versus winning the championship. Or a writer focuses on the paragraph rather than the whole book.

Achieving small milestones creates momentum and constraints that guide you to the ultimate goal.

Fail at the Level of Future Self

Fail at the Level of Future Self

  • Push past what you can already do easily. Commit to your future self's greatness, even if it means stumbling in the short term.
  • Experience momentary failure now to rapidly gain skills of your future self. Staying comfortable limits necessary growth.

True Success Means Alignment

True Success Means Alignment

Many people seek external validation like fame, wealth and prestige as success. But true success is living and working in alignment with your aims and highest future self, whatever that looks like for you.

  • Even if it means giving up public acclaim to have a small, simple life doing what you love.
  • Fame doesn't equal success if it steers you from your purpose.
  • Define success based on your vision, not others' narrow perceptions.

Elevate Your Identity

Elevate Your Identity

Upgrade from needing your goal to knowing it's already yours. Act from the identity of your future self who has already achieved the goal. Knowing accelerates your purpose more powerfully than needing.

When your identity stems from your future commitments rather than present ones, you operate at a higher level.

Be, then do, then have.
