Favorite Quote

“For 100 years, the field of psychology assumed that your behavior was completely driven by the past. Well, a lot of research these days in positive psychology says that your behavior is actually driven by your view of the future. The challenge is that most people don't spend much time imagining their future selves, they're not actively creating a future self, and they're not being aggressive. It can't just be inside your head. Your identity is the story you tell about yourself. So if you're serious about creating a specific and valued version of your future, you have to start telling people about it.
