A person who masters coping and, better yet, feels joy in the present, need not worry about the future. When the future comes, it will be the present and he will be able to handle it.
Moreover, if you master feeling joy in your present moments, you need never to be concerned that you are missing anything, since whatever you are engaged in can be transformed into the most elevating experience.
(Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.151)
