The rock or the hard place?

Your character has finally made a decision between two seemingly right choices. It could be they've decided which of two perfect people to marry. It could be they've decided tax dollars should go to the development of faster than light travel rather than cheap, renewable energy. It could be they've decided to slay the troll that has been threatening the village with ravaging for a dozen years unless tribute is paid to him.

And then your character receives a message from their character's future self persuading their current self why they need to make a different choice.

And then, to put a twist on it, once the character is persuaded, have a message from the future self of the other choice arrive to persuade the character why they need to make a different choice.
