I’ve recently been using this mindset where I asked myself “What will I think 5 years from now?”
Instead of saying “Wow, I wish I played more violin when I was younger”
I tell myself that if I start playing more violin NOW, then 5 years from now, I won’t have this “regret”
What will I think about my present self, 5 years from now?
I’ll probably wish that I learned more skills.
And played more basketball.
Meditated, jogged, played more violin, and did more fun experiences.
So instead of having those regrets 5 years from now, I just do them.
