Since you don't seem to grasp my point, I will say it quite bluntly. A person must live in today, not the dream world they wish for tomorrow. Build your life successfully by living successfully every day. One day at a time. Once you begin this process, you can build for the future very easily. Don't try to plan your life too much as things hardly turn out the way you plan.

I understand you, I just disagree.

Living one day at a time has caused a great many difficulties in my life. Living in the moment caused me to make some very bad decisions as far as money, relationships, health issues and career plans/choices go.

I *need* a "master plan" to compare the choices I make today to my long range goals. Without it, I flounder and create more problems. I agree that you shouldn't OVER plan (I've done that, too) but living "one day at a time" doesn't work for me.
