The 3 time perspectives of the human mind

  1. Past: When you’re focused on the past, you’re often paralyzed by what has happened to you. You either wish your life was like the “good old days” or you wish certain things didn’t happen.
  2. Present: When you’re primarily focused on the present, you either want instant gratification or enjoyment of what’s in front of you. No thought of the past or the future.
  3. Future: A future-oriented person is someone who eats healthy food, gets good grades in school, doesn’t smoke, drink, and is always working towards a future outcome.

The 1/9/90 principle of time perspectives

1% past-focused: I take about 15 minutes a day to journal . I try to occasionally reflect on the past to learn. 

9% future-focused: This is the time I dedicate to planning and thinking about the future . I always want to be aware of the fact that life can be long.

90% present-focused: This is when I execute my plans and the time I spend enjoying my days. I don’t want to be lost in thought when I do these things.

Be flexible and be present

The way we act depends on the situation. When we mix up time perspectives, we get frustrated with life.

Correcting our perspective helps us to live every moment to the fullest .

Ultimately, we all want to make the best use of our time. So no matter what you do, don’t wait for life to bring you joy, clarity,or purpose. Embrace your past, think about the future, but remember that now is the time to live. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not here yet. So make today count.
