Sometimes people are not that impressed with exercises like the best possible self where you imagine what your life would be like if everything worked out. They simply don’t see the point. Yet this is not some airy-fairy psychology stuff: it has helped me in daily business at the bank. Whenever I procrastinate something constantly I know that it is inefficient and could be done better. Now if I would just look at existing systems the new solution might suck a bit less. But it wouldn’t be as good as the solutions we frequently end up implementing. Because even if my dream solutions can’t be implemented (surprisingly often it actually can) we still end up getting a better product than if we would aim for the level that practical reasoning would suggest. The same is true for your own life.
