Live For Today, Plan For Tomorrow

Our success and effectiveness often depend on our ability to hold two contradictory thoughts in our head simultaneously. Live each day as if it is your last; and plan to live for many, many more years. Martin Luther is quoted to have said: "Even if I knew the world would end tomorrow, I would still plant an apple tree." Ask yourself: "What would I do differently if I knew today is my last day on this planet? How would I plan for the long term none the less?"
