    Would you rather save for your future or enjoy today?

    It's just a question of whether you enjoy the present and not think much about what will happen in the future, or to focus and save for the future that you don't enjoy the present?

    gratify yourself now or in the future?

    You never want to spend the whole dollar.
    One has to learn to enjoy today but also be prepared for tomorrow.

      That's a nice way to put it, dashingscorpio. I guess you get to seize the day but also have some saved up for the rainy day. smile

    I would do both. I just can't concentrate on just saving for the future and not enjoy the present as well. I give you an example, a colleague of ours nearly finished 40 years of working and was due to retire but before he reached the 40th year, he was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease and was in a wheelchair in no time. Imagine his dreams of enjoying retirement after saving up for forty years and then before he reached his retirement, he was seriously ill and died a few months after. He was a very good man and a good carer. So I would try and make every day count as I don't know what might happen tomorrow. Life is really short.

      That is very true liesl5858. I was thinking of the same thing, but I find it really hard to save for the future. I guess I'm too caught up in the present. tongue

    For me it's not an either/or situation. I save some money for the future, but I still spend money on vacations and things so I can enjoy my life now.

    It is always better to plan your retirement than spending everything lavishly. Save for future so that when your body becomes weak you will have ample sum to live life wothout compromising. check this link to learn more http://www.onlinecompliancepanel.com/ec … d=ART60001
