The Day Before Tomorrow: The Doors of What-Ifs

I recently read an interesting book titled The Day Before Tomorrow written by Vipul Naik. In this book, the author talks about how today’s decisions we make can have a profound impact on our lives in the future. Think about it for a second: Today you made a decision that will significantly change your life in the future. If you continue with your present path, how will tomorrow look? Will it be good? Bad? Depressing? The day before tomorrow is something that everyone should think about every now and then. It’s the day before tomorrow when we can transform our good habits into great ones and improve on things we struggle with.
Before I go any further let me introduce you to what I call ‘What-ifs’. When we are confronted with choices, ideas, and situations that aren’t ideal we often question what if – or as in this situation: yesterday instead of today… What if I had done this earlier? What if I had spoken up first instead of later… And so on and so forth. These are all instances where we change the ‘what-ifs’ to better ones. Better because they provide more options rather than fewer ones; options that can help us escape the problem instead of making it worse. Here are some examples of what-ifs that changed my life for the better:
What if you never started learning to code?
As a kid, I was interested in computers and programming. I even bought my first computer, a Commodore 64, when I was only eight years old. I loved it. I had an entire room set up with a desk, a chair, and a computer with about seven different computer disks that I loaded up with all sorts of games, utilities, and other things. I was in heaven. Obviously, I didn’t get as into computers as I did today, but I still was fascinated by them. I had become interested in computer science back in high school and I decided to go for it. It was the late 90’s, and early 2000’s, there were no schools offering Computer Science degrees. I went to a few online schools and eventually got a certificate in Computer Science.
What if you never started working out?
I was just a skinny kid but as I got older I fell into a bad habit of skipping intense workouts. I would miss a few days or weeks of working out then return to my old routine of sitting at a desk all day. I was overweight and out of shape. I would feel sluggish and tired all the time. I didn’t feel good in my own skin.
What if you never switched jobs?
I was working as an engineer on a project that didn’t seem like it would be very successful. It was a great opportunity for me as an engineer, but there was a chance it would fail and we would lose a lot of money. I was worried about losing my house, about being homeless. My wife was about to have our first child and I didn’t want to risk being a poor father. I knew that our debts were high, and if the project failed, there was a chance we would lose our home. I had dealt with high debts in the past and I didn’t want to deal with it again. I decided to switch jobs.
What if you never wrote that first blog post?
I was interested in writing and I tried a few times to write some articles. Nothing ever came out right, and I would get frustrated and frustrated because I wanted to be able to write something that was decent. I decided to take a break from writing and focus on something else. I got into a creative rut, and all of the sudden, a few years later, I found myself back in that rut again. I had become unfocused, and all of a sudden ideas were flowing out of me. I was writing again but I was struggling to write something worth reading. I had a few ideas but nothing that was good enough to put in a book or article. I picked up a pen, and I decided to write something. I had nothing to write about, but I just started writing. I had no idea what I was going to write about, but I just got a pen and paper and started writing.
The decisions you make in your life can change your life dramatically. This holds true for all decisions made today, as well as the ones you made yesterday. If you look back, you might find that you could have done things better, or done things differently. You might find that you could have made different decisions about your future. When it comes to what-ifs, you may find that you could have changed your past. What-ifs can be powerful tools that can help you change your future for the better.
