My Daily Thoughts


Be Your Future Self

Practice self-awareness, self-evaluation, and self-improvement. If we are aware that our manners - language, behavior, and actions - are measured against our values and principles, we are able to more easily embody the philosophy, leadership is a matter of how to be, not how to do.
Frances Hesselbein
  • Who is the person who will live your vision?
  • Who do you need to be to reach your goals?
  • Who do you want to be one year from now?

Take the time to figure out who your future self is and then be that person. At first, it won’t feel genuine, but keep doing it until it becomes a habit.

As you go through the motions of being your future self you will identify the skills you need to master and the knowledge you will need to have.

Master those skills and learn the knowledge as your future self. This is the practice, and your future self gives you the focus.

Think of an athlete. They are not going to practice based on the athlete they are, they are going to practice as if they are the athlete they want to be. Put in enough practice and they will soon be the same.
