We aren’t built for the moment.
Humans, by nature, are pulled to the future. Martin Seligman and John Tierney argue in the Times that this quality is what makes humans ‘wise’ — that we’re looking ahead.

Every single thing you will do in this moment will impact your next move, your tomorrow, your future. So stay woke.
Be aware. Keep your eyes open. Be a part of your surroundings. Live now like the future, wise you depends on it.
