Live like there's no tomorrow, but plan like you'll live forever.

That's the philosophy that the CEO of Mid-Day Squares outlined in a podcast interview recently. 

These are two extremes. 

To live like there's no tomorrow is to maximise joy in the moment and to live without any worry. At the same time, planning like we'll live forever is to prioritise the long term over the short term and to carefully consider the consequences of today's choices on what's to come tomorrow.

When distilled, the advice is simply to seek balance. To not over-do or over-index on anything. To not completely give up on living with joy today in the hopes of a pay-off tomorrow. And it is also not to over-index on having a blast today without a thought to the negative consequences that will play out tomorrow. 

The important thing to seek to achieve is balance.
