I've been reading a lot of his work lately, and found this quote very interesting given my current circumstance. I am one who used to focus on the back of the book (I would cheat and look at the answers). Metaphorically, I did this in my life too, trying to look ahead to see what the 'right' answer is. The problem with this, is you create an endless loop of 'trying' to find the right answer and end up never finding it and missing all the great moments of now as they pass you by.

So where are you giving up your now, in order to secure a better future, that you might also miss, because you aren't focused in the present? (how's that for a brainer twister?)

"...who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. " ~ Theodore Roosevelt
