Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Imagine your future self, ie, you 10 years from now. If he/she were to send you a tweet or text message, 1) what would it say and 2) how would that transform your life or change something you’re doing, thinking, believing or saying today?

This is really very scary. I mean, I know I have been writing the Trust 30 challenge these last 30 days, but nothing has scared me more than this particular one. Facing the hard question. Ever since I have read this, I have been wondering where my life is going. I have not chartered it yet, no goal posts, yes, some goals to reach, but When? What do I really, really want to do and complete within the next 10 years and feel happy that I did it while I was still alive and well and healthy. The questions are hard. I , despite my targets and attidute, have not really put down what I want to achieve by when. From this viewpoint, despite all my attempts to focus and state my wants, I could just drift along and again drift along and again drift along and then…
I have to not only state what, but also by when?
This needs a good solid think and then a kick in my pants to get me moving. It is so easy to wait for the tomorrow.
The tweet I would be sent would be:
Feels good to know that you have achieved the goals you wanted and that you are at a happy place, a content place. Aren’t you glad you woke up in time?
