If I had a child to teach

193 is today's lucky number.

If I had a child to whom I were teaching All The Life Lessons, I would say:

No matter what your age, put time into future you. You're told to do that in big, broad ways which really don't relate to your life - one of the more famous being "Get good grades in high school so you can go to a good college, get good grades, get a good job, and support the family you don't know you want to have". I'd like to see people start it on a very personal level - as simple as "I won't eat this candy bar today, because my tomorrow self will really enjoy having it."
