On being present

An article from the Zen Habits blog: A Simple Guide to Being Present.

[…] The only thing we can do about the future is do something … now. In the present.

[…] There’s also the problem of missing the present. If we spend most of our time thinking about the past or future, we are missing life itself. It’s passing us by while we’re elsewhere. You can’t get the most out of life unless you learn to focus on being present, while things are happening. Thinking about your childhood, or your kid’s future, is useless if your kids’ childhood is passing by without you being there.
