Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Futureme – Write a letter to the future.
What is it?
Futureme is a website that allows you to write a letter to yourself in the future.
How can it help me?
Write a letter to your future you at the FutureMe website, ask it deliver the letter in 1, 3, 5 years time (or a specific date of your choosing) and then sit back.
At the date you’ve specified in the future, you’ll receive an email from yourself in the past!
You can make your letters private or public, but anonymous. You can read the Public, but anonymous, letters on FutureMe and there are some great ones!
I inevitably forget that I’ve sent the future me a letter, and so it always comes as a surprise when I receive the letter from my past self!
I’ve used FutureMe to remind myself of important lessons I’ve learned, experiences I’ve been through, a reminder that perseverance and consistency lead to success, and hopes that I have for the future. It’s a surprisingly effective method of reminding yourself of what is important to you.
FutureMe is like a tiny personalised TARDIS for your letters. 🙂
How much does it cost?
FutureMe is free to use.
You can support FutureMe with a donation.
There is also a FutureMe Pro version which is customisable for teachers, counsellors, communities and brands.
How can I get it?
Visit FutureMe.org and write your letter to the future you, now!
