Do you believe it is good to live day to day or look far ahead and plan well ahead?
I believe that while it would be nice to live day to day (a luxury in fact), planning well ahead becomes a necessary evil in life, especially as you become married and then parents. Things have to be planned out, or you will miss important deadlines, holidays, and responsibilities that you will not easily be excused for. Especially with children, planning ahead makes your life possible to live without being the constant deadbeat all the time! There is just so much to remember to be on top of, socially, with school, activities, and family. Looking far ahead and being well prepared reduces much stress in the moment.
For me, I live day to day and plan a little but not plan too much. I used to plan things in my younger days but all of my plans had been wrecked by tragedies. So now, I don't plan too much. I will think about my retirement but who knows I might not even get there.
I believe it's important to have a mix of both short term and long term goals. Tomorrow is promised to no man but just in case there is a tomorrow you want to be in a position to make the most of it. In other words don't spend the whole dollar today.
It is good to live day to day and it is good to plan ahead. I don't think it is good to just do one or the other. People should do both. I believe people should spend a little time thinking about the future so they can set goals and a lot of time taking action in the present.
I live day to day while having long term and short term goals. Planning ahead is like using a map to help you end up where you want to be.
