More than often we think that our future is important then our present. But is it? We are always planning for it. And saving money and resources for it. Saving money is important but being present is also important as well.
Think about it if you are not happy now. Will you be happy in your imaginary future? Don’t fool yourself in think that future is a real thing. It is always an imagination. So whatever you think about your future either good or bad it is just your imagination.
So being so absorbed in future is not good for you and your life. If you have a habit of thinking that your future will be better than present then you are flawed on some level.
I am not saying that your future cannot be better.

I am saying that you can make your future better only by being fully present in now. There is no other way to do it. Because you are creating your future in the movements that you are currently living.
If you are worried that if I do not plan for my future then what kind of future will I have. I not say that you should not plan for your future. Planning and worrying are to different things when you plan you are set to take some action to make things better but when you are worrying you are just wasting your metal energy and time.
And over planning is also an issue with some of us. The best way to overcome that is by setting aside a specific time in week when you are going to make plans.
If you have any ideas or suggestion in the week about plans you will write them in specific place so that you can review them then you plan.
What will have the most impact in your future?
If you think about it closely you will find out that the most important thing in your life is your actions. Because what you do will determine what you will get.
No matter how good of a plan you have it is of no use if you do not put it in use. So you should focus on taking a lot of action.

Why it is important that you have fun now?
It is important that you have fun now because you will always have now. If you do not have fun now then you will never have fun at all. If you are thinking that if you do that thing then you will have fun but when you complete this thing there will be something else at its place. It is a never ending process you will just keep going round and round.
So think about it and make changes in your life. If you want to change your habits then you should read The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do, and How to Change -Charles Duhigg it is one of the best books if you want to change your habits.
