I heard someone mutter the latter yesterday morning and it got me to thinking… Does the general popularity of these phrases have anything to do with a society-wide deficiency of aspirations and lack of motivation?

It makes more sense to live life between the lines of Monday and Friday by accepting things the way that they are, but simultaneously making proactive steps forward. It is about not getting completely hung up on the past or the future, but dealing with the present situation in a way that moves you closer to your ideals. Although, I suppose that would take a lot of self discipline.
