..and then, when you get out into this famous world, comes the struggle for success in profession or business. And then when you're about 40 or 45 years old, in the middle of life, you wake up one day and say 'Huh!? I've arrived.' And while it is of tremendous use to us to be able to look ahead and to plan, there is no use planning for a future which if you get to it and it comes to present you won't be there. You'll be living in some other future that hasn't yet arrived. And so in this way, one is never actually able to inherit and enjoy the fruits of ones actions. You can't live at all, unless you can live fully now."
~ Alan Watts, 1959
