After dropping out of high school at age 16, I was less wreckless. I stopped having lots of fun, in fear that it will stir me off course.
I don’t believe that now. I know I need to be more wreckless? “Hedonistic Present” is what the book “The Time Paradox”, calls it.
It’s difficult. But you need to live your life in the present. Saving to live for the future that may never come is dumb.
Being too future focused is bad sometimes. Easier said then done though, but all good things are hard.
