Girth Radio Presents…
The future inconveniences us by forcing us to go through the present.
It’s the decisions we make now, powered by a compelling vision of the future that determine our fate. Want to ditch winter weight for a beach body by Summer means going on a diet now.
In theory the futures we court and cultivate tend to be positive, nobody dreams of being poor or homeless. It’s the classic crystal ball seduction. Yet in reality we make bad decisions all the time, we smoke, we tweet, get into draining relationships, we compromise willingly and often because the present (with its present pain) is ruthlessly demanding.
We don’t want to feel good in the future; we want to feel good now.
We live in the consequences of past nows.
