The fool’s life is empty of gratitude and full of fears; its course lies wholly toward the future – Epicurus
Most of us these days are obsessed with our future. In future we want to be our own boss, we want to run our own company, travel the world, become a millionaire, and so on. We are being sold the dream that life will become meaningful if we become our own boss. What this usually leads to is unsatisfied today. Our blind desires stop us from contributing to our current work in the most complete form. We make compromises in terms of quality and focus in our current jobs. This means we loose out on the training for the better future tomorrow. I think this trend is making us incompetent and we will never be better prepared to make a real difference in future. We should show gratitude and contentment in our existing job. This will give us internal peace and help us prepare for better future tomorrow.
