Story of my life:

I was scrolling on Netflix over the weekend with my wife, looking for a movie to watch.

We came across one that I really enjoyed the first time that I watched it.

It’s called When We First Met. It’s about a rom-com about a guy who meets a girl and decides that she is “the one.”

He does a whole bunch of crazy stuff to get her to fall in love with him, but nothing really works.

Fast forward 10 years and he is miserable.

But there is a twist.

In his depression, he returns to the bar where they first met and reminisces over the old photo booth where they took a picture.

He is then transported back in time to the day that they met. And he has a chance to do it all over again, knowing what he now knows.

I think the way it works out in the film is that he spends on day in college where he meets this girl and then the next day is 10 years later in his regular life… I don’t completely remember this part haha

But what I like about the movie is that he gets to make a set of choices and then the next day he sees the accumulation of 10 years of that framework.

If he works too hard then the next day he is wealthy, but estranged from his wife, out of shape, and miserable.

If he acts disinterested and overconfident, he becomes a loser with frosted tips who everyone dislikes.

This kind of feedback is something that we can all learn from.

Our decision making would be vastly different if we could see the accumulation of 10 years of doing that thing over and over again.

And I believe we would all make better choices.

So the next time you feel like skipping the gym, imagine what you would look like in 10 years if you didn’t work out.

The next time you want to push out a deadline or break a commitment to yourself, imagine where you would be in 10 years if that was who you became.

Now imagine where you would be if you kept your commitments. If you wrote every day. If you worked on improving your programs, your relationship with your audience, and your relationships with others in the industry.

There are a lot of “secrets” and tactics and hacks you can use to succeed in life and business. But I believe this to be one of the most valuable.
