"Earth, my dearest, I will. 
Oh believe me, you no longer need your springtimes to win me over -

-  Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies, 9th, 1923

I find it's best to just focus on the day and not think ahead...and as long as you do something useful every day...quite a bit gets don overall. Well enough until a big money win arrives!
