Give Later, Give Forever

Procrastination comes naturally. It is easy to set your alarm for the morning. It is difficult to actually get up when it goes off. Delegating to our future selves. This insight led to the 'save later' concept. It is easier to save a chunk of your future increases, than to cut back on your current expenses. The same concept could be used to fund a Community Wealth Fund. If people who can afford to fund their own Universal Basic Income donate it to the community when they no longer need it. So you are giving up nothing now. Money, well managed, can live forever. If instead of seeing yourself as the owner of your wealth, privilege and talents, you can be a custodian. Zero impact on your current lifestyle. Infinite impact on the empowerment of future generations.
