Default The Future

At the moment, I'm being constantly reminded to think about my future. What A-Levels to choose, What Career I would like to go into etc...
I have literally no clue what I want to do at all.

What do you think your future will be?

Death. Before that? It's anyone's guess. I don't think about it truth be told.

I think it's a shame we're taught so young to look to the future, to plan for it, to have goals and targets, it fixes our gaze on some distant abstraction rather than our immediate surroundings. In layman's terms we forget to smell the roses. Life is like a piece of sweet music - we shouldn't be too fixed on reaching the climax or the cresendo, rather we should enjoy the whole piece. Life's a journey. Not a destination. That's what I think anyway. Feel free to say I'm talking bollocks.

Do you literally write all that stuff off the top of your head? Sure, it may be bollocks, but you can certainly use metaphors.

Just because you're so deep and "live in the moment" doesn't mean you can't have goals.

People can have whatever goal(s) they want. If they truly want something, they should aim for it. My concern is most goals are not really their own, but the ideas of their friends, their parents, their teachers, government, media. We're all bombarded from an early age by a plethora of messages telling us what we want, where we should aim, what we should be. It's crazy.

Alan Watts touches on it here:

I'm either going to follow through on my dream of becoming an astrophysicist and go from there, or give up during my education and live the stupid, jobless, careless life that I wanted to a few years ago, but vowed it would never work.
