Pretend with me for a moment that it is possible for you to meet yourself at 7-years-old. Imagine how that conversation would go.
I did this as part of a challenge I was participating in and this is what I imagined 7-year-old Tim would say to me.
Wow, you got paid to draw! That is so cool. I can’t believe you were able to do that. But why did you spend so much time commuting to your job? And why are you still so self-conscious?
When I was seven, I loved to draw. I wanted to be a cartoonist. It never occurred to me that one day I would get paid to draw buildings. But I did.
When I was seven, I hated to be in a car for long periods of time. It never occurred to me that one day I would drive two hours a day to work. But I did.
When I was seven, I was very self-conscious. I hated to get my picture taken. It never occurred to me that one day I would get over that feeling. I didn’t.
Surprises? Some. Regrets? Some.
How would a conversation between today’s you and 7-year-old you go?
Would you be embarrassed to share what you’ve done?
Would you be excited to share what you’ve done?
Daily Doable: Live in such a way that IF you could meet the 7-year-old version of you, they would be proud of the person you have become.
