An email from a year ago

leave a comment »

I just received the FutureMe email I wrote to myself a year ago: December 31, 2021. I had expected to get an email from my year-ago self tomorrow, but today does seem like a good day to look back at the coming year and plan for the next. I hit some specific topic areas that might serve as grist for your own FutureMe mill:

  1. A brief description of your current situation (social, emotional, financial, educational (that is, what you’re in the process of learning), spiritual, and relationships).
  2. Your worries and concerns and even fears for the coming year. (No one else will see this.)
  3. Your hopes for the coming year.
  4. Your specific goals for the coming year — emotional, financial, educational (i.e., what you want to learn), spiritual, and your relationships.
  5. Any plans or ideas by which you might achieve those goals.
  6. Anything else that occupies your mind: dreams, concerns, activities (current and planned), and so on.

This post on planning might be helpful. And see also see the previous post.

Two updates: 1) This brief article suggests additional uses for FutureMe.  2) See also “How putting purpose into your New Year’s resolutions can bring meaning and results.”

Today I ponder the email I received and write an email for delivery a year from now.
