Think Forward to Thrive

Being excited about future rewards is a fundamental human desire, says empowerment coach Remy Blumenfeld

You already know how having fun things to look forward later in the day, or on the weekend can help make a sad or boring day tolerable.  Now multiply that effect by 100.

Thinking forward six months into your future can be transformative.

I used never to plan anything.  Scheduling felt like work to me – and it felt constraining and joyless.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Hurtling from one thing to the next may have sounded youthful and spontaneous, but it was robbing me of a fundamental human excitement: The pleasure of planning.

When you have three things to look forward to, something in your work life, something in your home life and of course a holiday, I promise the thrill of anticipation will infuse your daily existence, even when life at home or work feels flat and dull.

I came to this realisation when I happened to be sitting next to a older man at a business lunch, who seemed to radiate contentment.
