Live for today. That's it, that's my big fat comedy message.
Yes you have to prepare for tomorrow but you'd be surprised how much of that success rests on what you do today....but by all means for your own sanity,... TODAY first!
Get into the journey funny people, you'll get more out of it and you won't be disappointed, you'll get funnier too, your writing will improve. I say this from experience. I was there once; focused only on the destination and when I got to my dream spot it wasn't what I wanted at all.
