Second self

This might sound crazy.

Try imagining that a second version of yourself is monitoring and giving you feedback on what you’re doing throughout the day. Almost like a micro managing boss standing over your shoulder, except an imaginary version of yourself.

That ‘second-self’ is judging you on your actions.

Does this change anything? Do you go about your day differently?

I’ve been trying this and surprisingly it’s been effective. If I look at what I’m doing from this ‘outside’ viewpoint I can see pretty quickly wether or not the actions I’m taking are aligned with my personal mission/vision.

It’s a tool worth trying to manage yourself.
