We shouldn't think too much ahead. Just be aware of what's happening around you. What kind of talents you have within you. In long run you want to create future, but future easily becomes an excuse to postpone decisions you have to take today. If you don't change today, tomorrow will be like today. So therefore everything is already happening in the now.
