Life lie

We are constantly fed with milestones and goals. At times they can be seductive and make us go out of our comfortability zone, make us think, build and believe. This is all good.

What about us living a life constantly on the edge: worried about future and carrying past biases. The constant urge to seeking a better version of self make us forget living in the present.

Why are we not taught in any books or by society to live in the present moment, give best at it? Why are we all incentivized so much of our better future? Why does the reality of now take a back seat in front of a glorified future?
