How much of what you do on a daily basis is for your present self? What about your future self?

So much of what we do on a daily basis takes care of our present OR our future selves, but not both. We may push things off (procrastinate), leaving our future selves to deal with them later. Or we may overload our schedules now (precrastinate) in the hopes that our future selves can relax.

We believe it’s important to find balance between looking out for our present and future selves. We call it being preinclined.

We’re exploring content and products that help us care for our future selves in a way that is delightful for our present selves.

We started asking people from all over the world how they find balance between their present and future selves. You can read some of their stories here.

We want to know: What does being preinclined mean to you?

As we began our journey to explore precrastination, procrastination, and present vs. future selves, we reflected on our own experiences and wrote a series of essays.

We developed a light-hearted quiz to get people reflecting on their tendencies to precrastinate and procrastinate. Where do you fall on the pre- to pro- scale?
