      Awful advice. If you'd thought about it you'd know why.

      I think there has to be a balance. Obviously if there wasn't going to be a tomorrow, we'd all be spending all the money we have on something really frivolous... and then when tomorrow comes we'd all be bankrupt!
      On the flip side, I think we should try and make the most of each day in a sensible way. Don't waste time doing nothing if there are things you should be getting on with, or other things you'd rather be doing.

      Generally speaking, tell the people you love that you love them, because you never know if you'll get another chance.
      Don't hesitate to do things that you want to do, if it is only fear holding you back.
      Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

      Other than that, there's nothing wrong with being careful with money and so on, because touch wood we WILL have tomorrows, but obviously you never know. It does have to be, as I say, a balance.

      i agree to some extent, obviously you need to plan for a future (savings, education, etc) but i think sometimes people need to kind of wake up and realise that today is their life. i think it's soo easy to adopt the idea that there is a pinnacle moment in a vague future where you'll sit back and think "i've done it, i'm now happy" that you just need to wait for which isn't the case.

      i've felt so ill today that i've sat in my room in my pjs all day and night on a saturday and you know what, it's still been a good day

      I half agree.

      Sitting at home revising 24/7 for a better future is not a good idea. If you spend all your life working for a better future, you're going to be having a sucky present. So you should focus on having fun/enjoying life but not so much that it damages your future.
