What if you could write yourself a letter or email and have it delivered in the future? What would you tell yourself? Would it be useful? Would you remind yourself of the good things going on in your life, or the bad? Or would you just say what is? How do you think your future self would benefit from the information? Would you use it to set short term or long term goals? Would you tell yourself what to do? Would you send one forward a month, 6 months, a year, or longer?
Those are some of the questions I was asking myself when I came across this site - www.futureme.org. It's a site on which you can compose yourself an email today to send to yourself sometime in the future. I just wrote an email to myself for delivery in about 6 months about the things I learned while on vacation that I want to remember for future vacations. I think I'm also going to use it to send my short term goals to myself , so that I can see exactly how I've done. I know there are probably as many ways to use this as there are people, so I'm curious - how would YOU use such a tool?
