Leaders of tomorrow. Save for tomorrow. No one knows tomorrow. Everything is going to be fine tomorrow. I’ll do it tomorrow. This is how the tomorrow syndrome builds.

This is a guest post by Oyebola Oyewole Nathaniel

My question is “Why are we so obsessed about tomorrow?” “Why do we care so much about tomorrow that we leave the present day to focus more on tomorrow? “

I’m sure you are wondering why I came up with this piece. In all sincerity, all I see is people being so bothered about their tomorrow they overstress themselves on the unknown. Many people cannot live in the present again as all they bother about is securing tomorrow. However, “have you achieved your goal for today?”

Don’t Stop Planning

I’m not saying you shouldn’t plan for your future. Don’t get it wrong. Or that you should not work towards making your future bright. What I’m really saying is that you should live in the moment, enjoy every bit like it’s your last. Work hard for today, achieve what you can achieve because you want to achieve it. Think about tomorrow, but don’t get obsessed with it. It is tomorrow. No one knows if it’s going to come, but if it sure does, we will be there to face it. 

Don’t catch the tomorrow syndrome. Live for today. Don’t get yourself worked up because of tomorrow. Remember, today was yesterday’s tomorrow. 

So, what are your thoughts? Join in the conversation, share in the comment section below and tell me if you’ve been caught up in The Tomorrow syndrome or if you believe in living for today. I’ll be reading your thoughts in the comment section.

  1. I didn’t understand what this tomorrow syndrome meant when I first saw the topic but now I get it.
    I think I’ve definitely been there, I think I still am sef.
    I also think people tell themselves these things to boost their morale to keep working today.

  2. The fear of the unknown, as for me I have left everything in one man, his name is Jesus, one thing I know is that he knows the tommorow from the beginning and I have confidence in HIM. Lastly, every decision we make in our today is equal to the result we get tommorow….. Gracias
