Hey friends,
If I said to you that your goals and values in 10 years will be very different to those now, you’d say yeah fair enough.
If I said to you your goals and values next year will be very different to those now, you’d say meh probably.
If I said to you your goals and values tomorrow will be different to those now today, you’d say most likely not.
What’s interesting here is that we can visualise change and understand things better in the long term than we can in the short term. But we’re generally terrible at enabling these changes to happen in the present term.
This is exactly why most of us are scared to chop and change in the present moment but can easily make elaborate plans for the things we’ll do next year, in five years, or even ten years.
What I’m trying to get at here is we all know our values and goals in ten years will be very different to our values and goals today. We all make extensive plans for what our lives may look like sometime in the future. But, not many of us can make the short-term decisions that will lead us to our long-term goal.
One of my 10-year goals is to leave the NHS (it’s pretty rough/broken - cc this incredible thread by Dr Yusef Smith). But, I’m not really doing much to enable that today. Like any goal, it isn’t going to miraculously happen in ten years if I don’t begin work now. If I’m to leave the NHS and move into something with a better ROI than working for the NHS, then I need to start working on it today. To be clear, the ROI is only poor financially and mentally, the profession still remains to be one of the most rewarding things I do daily.
Embrace change. Embrace it today. Do the things today that will pay dividends in ten years. Don’t get to year ten and realise you’ve achieved nothing of what you wanted to achieve.

Book 📚 - The Psychology Of Money
I just blitzed through this on a long drive on Audible. It’s actually an insane amount of value. Like any ambitious young adult, I aspire to be financially free sometime in the next 10-15 years. Ultimately, I value time in life. Time to spend on me, my family, and my friends. So, I never really want to be tied to a ‘job’ or ‘career’ where I don’t decide when to work. This book lays out an insane framework for building that kinda steady wealth that will allow me to be time-free in the future.
That’s all for this week - be safe, be happy!
