When I was 22, I wrote a letter to my 28 year old self.
It explained what I wanted to be by that age. The things I'd liked to have achieved. the places I'd like to have visited and the man I'd like to be.
After a six years and forgetting about this letter, I found it a couple of weeks before my 28th birthday.
To my surprise, after years of not knowing about this paper, I'd achieved nearly everything on the list. It was like a map that I'd set for my subconscious. I recommend doing it. In fact, to be more specific, I recommend doing the Jordan Peterson's Future Authoring Program.
It's easier to hit a target when you know what it is.
