Not worrying about the future works fantastically until the future becomes the present and you are woefully unprepared. I am all for living in the present and enjoying what you have, but you don't want to just pretend the future isn't coming. It is.

It depends on the culture, you can be a lot more relaxed about the future if you have the safety net of a large family or generous state to rely on.
