I read this concept of “future-self continuity” from a book on Willpower challenge. It was a physiological study researched by a Professor in New York University. The study essentially says that clearly imagining your future self can increase your present self’s willpower. When you picture the future vividly, the brain begins to think more concretely about the consequences of your present choices.
Hence in this page, I will essentially layout my future self. This will help me steer my present choices.
