    ah, how this differs from trying to get maximum out of past self? Although present activities contribute future chances, there is no guarantee for any gain just because of our ‘awareness’ about present + future self.

    The strategies about future faces fiasco not because of imbalance in maintaining both present – future self but due to unconscious plans/activities which also contributes future self’s possibilities.
