You are not who you are becoming
Albert Einstein once said, "Time is an illusion," and in this fascinating TED talk, Dan Gilbert argues time isn't the only illusion. Add self-perception. Gilbert presents some pretty compelling data that we underestimate who we are becoming and fail to imagine all of the ways we will be different. "The person you are right nowis as transient, as fleeting, and as temporaryas all the people you've ever been."

I'm not sure what questions this prompts in you, but I can't help but ask myself...
Where do I lack imagination in how I can grow?
What tastes and opinions are most likely to change?
Where am I holding on too tightly to my current life?
And, more important than all of those questions, where am I skeptical about how others can change and grow?
What questions does this talk make you consider?
