Several years I came across this interesting site. Just type yourself an email and mark when you want to receive it. I decided to give it a try. I wrote myself an encouraging email set to be delivered one year into the future. I quickly forgot about the site and service. Then a year later, I was grateful to get such an encouraging email from myself. What a cool little site.

There are all kinds of applications here:

  • Need to remind yourself of something to do in the future. Send yourself an email… in the future.

Okay, that’s about all I could come up with. The site is more about fun than productivity. However, I did think of one other use. When setting goal for the future, type out all the goals and have them emailed to you in 3 months, 6 months and in one year. The email might serve as a great reminder to keep yourself on track.
