There is nothing like the present, is there? Living in the now without worries about the past or the future, enjoying each moment to the fullest – now that is life. But, there is a problem with this idea, since it is often misinterpreted that living in the present means not thinking about the past or the future. Living in the present without worrying about the past or the future is a good thing, but the problem starts when we fail to plan for our future just so we can enjoy ourself in the present.
Present is not only the time to enjoy, but also the time to work on our future. It is easy to get side tracked by focusing only on the fun part and ignoring the part where we work to make ourself a better future. Living in the present without worrying about the future is fine, but losing the sight of the future is not commendable. We need to plan for the future, if not we will get lost without any specific destination to reach. And if you have nowhere to go, you’ll automatically want do something fun that will distract you from feeling lost.
If the present is only focused on having fun and distracting yourself then, there won’t be much progress in your life, because your effort to make things happens determines how far you’ll go in the future. So, we have to do our best to make each moment count.
The solution to this problem is simple. We need to make ourself a schedule and act according to it. Brainstorm a little, think about the future and make yourself a schedule which will enable you to achieve your future plans. Having things scheduled helps us to organize our work and fun sessions, so that neither of them will go out of control. This way you can have control of your life, instead of living your life on the ‘auto-pilot’ mode.
As long as you’ve got passion, faith and are willing to work hard, you can do anything you want in this life.
