Fatalism redifined

1. "If tomorrow comes" is a truism. There is no known law which can predict if we exist the next day.

2. Work today like there is no tomorrow. (This follows from 1 - if we intend to make the most of our lives).

3. Replace tomorrow with today - whenever tomorrow becomes today.. (This involves nothing more than a paradigm shift).

4. Then tomorrow will never come (follows from 3)

5. This marks the end of worrying and the beginning of enjoying your life to the fullest.

 

Is this the right strategy to making your own destiny ? :blink:

If it works for you. It seems to involve far too much thinking and planning for my liking.

 

(Off topic: could you keep in mind that you have started several other threads, some of which are waiting responses from you. I'm sure you are not being deliberately rude by abandoning them.)

A good example of fatalism for me is taking a very specific concept (like the one presented in the OP) and trying to stretch it to fit everyone ("Is this the right strategy to making your own destiny?"), watching it fail as others constantly point out how bad a practice it is, but continuing to do it anyway. It seems predetermined to require calls for clarity, explanation of re-defined terms, and frustration at watching a too-wide brush cover elements it shouldn't.

 

If you're convinced of inevitability, why not set up situations that will inevitably be productive and positive?
