Two thousand years ago, the Roman poet Horace advised his readers to “think of each day as if it were to be your last,” and to seize the day (Carpe Diem!) because you cannot trust what tomorrow will bring.

How much happier could you be, and how much more would you accomplish, if you could truly adopt this mindset?
