Maybe the best advice ever given. The Sanskrit tells us that yesterday is but a memory and tomorrow a dream but today, well lived, will make every yesterday a pleasant memory and every tomorrow a dream of hope. Similarly, today is a gift, that's why it's called the present.
Perspective is important. Perhaps the best question we can ask ourselves is "What will this matter in five years?" Usually this can be shortened to five weeks or five days or five hours. What seems to be a monumental decision does not matter all that much in the whole scheme of things. Plan for the future but live for the moment.
