I love The Office.
You: I thought you didn’t watch much TV?
I don’t. But I do watch The Office. I think the writing is hysterical. One of my favorite scenes from the show was when Jim temporarily works out of the Stamford branch. To mess with Dwight’s precious little head, he begins sending faxes to Dwight, written on Dwight’s stationery, all the while claiming that the faxes were actually from Dwight – from the future. (Here’s the clip.)
Never one to let a purely entertainig moment lose its potential educational value, I wrote a post demonstrating how this “future self” concept could dramatically help with the motivation problem most pepole have with saving for something that they won’t benefit from into the distant future.
