Guide Review - FutureMe.org

"Dear FutureMe, 35 years ago today you were about to send your now present me a message. You wondered whether it would matter. It did not. Of course. Right? And… it did? It mattered in so many a matter, just like everything else your now old me did."

Sending Your Future Self Emails

With FutureMe.org, you can send yourself emails that will be delivered at a specific date, up to 50 years from when you are writing them.

You could remind yourself of the dreams you once had (only to find out they are way behind you now), as a general memory pool (the contrast of what you now think about your current situation and what you will remember about it in a few years can be stark), to send yourself birthday greetings, and as a classic exercise for the here and now, of course: where do you see yourself in five years?

The problem and the beauty with FutureMe.org is that the emails will actually be delivered in five years... it does not even help to change email addresses as FutureMe.org lets you update the address to which future messages will be delivered.

Tell the World, Too

For extra kicks, you can make the emails to your future me public, or add an image. Anybody can read them on FutureMe.org, and you can find out about other people's dreams, ideas and worries (seen from the imagined distance of a few years), too.
