You can’t fast-forward your life as you can a television show.
That sounds like a ridiculous notion, except we attempt it all the time!
Inside our heads, we engage over and over again in imaginary scenarios about the things that we have to do, and how we think they’re going to play out.
This is not the same thing as visualization or planning.
Visualization is a healthy tool for seeing yourself succeed at something you are about to do, so that when you do it, you actually succeed.
No, instead, fast-forwarding is more like worry. It doesn’t help us achieve anything.
In fact it just keeps us on pause, making no progress at all.
