Q: How do I start?
A: Plan to take at least thirty minutes writing your letter. Pick a paper and give it a start with: “Dear (Insert name here), I’m so glad that you are doing so well. I am happy to hear that….”
Q: Which time frame should I pick?
A: For short-term goals a year might be a good choice, for longer life-goals 5-10 horizon might be more suitable. Bear in mind the time frame when writing your letter. There’s no point in this exercise if you say things like, “I’m going to be a billionaire” in one year with little means to get there.
Q: What should I write about?
A: It’s up to you. You can write about where you hope to be in several years, or what your life is like today, or write about what you ate for breakfast. You can write a letter of compassion, ambition, empathy, or gratitude. The point is just to stop and reflect on yourself, your life, and the passage of time. There is no correct answer.
Q: Alright, but do you have any pointers?
A: Whatever you decide to write about, be specific. Go into details in each area of your life. Remember, it’s not only about setting high expectations towards yourself, it’s also about giving your future self some love. Here are a few recommendations: an advice to your future self, future professional and personal aspirations / hopes / wishes, fears and anxieties you wish to overcome, great things that happened to you and you are grateful for, 5 most important people in your life now, big life events that have happened recently, or things that are happening soon
