Planning for the future is not a waste of time. It can be very important.
Think about it. example NORAD and the EAS. NORAD is a nuclear fallout shelter. In case of a nuclear apocalypse, thousands of people can live there in safety. The EAS is a system that alerts as many American citizens as possible of an emergency by interrupting television and radio broadcasts. This is the system that you hear on TV that makes annoying sounds and tells you about emergencies, such as a tornado or a severe blizzard. It's true that we don't know if or when an emergency (like a nuclear fallout) will occur, but if we don't plan for such emergencies, the damage can be much worse. Let's say there is a nuclear war (which scientists predict may happen in the next 40 years). Without any planning and preparation, like the EAS or NORAD, American citizens wouldn't know about this emergency and millions of people would die. Planning or not, millions of people will die anyway. But with planning, you can also save millions of American lives. Now think about kids. Kids and their parents have to plan for their future, because they need a plan for when the kid goes to college and they retire. They need to have a plan about where to get the money, what college, where to move to, etc.
The future may be unpredictable, but planning for it is not a waste of time. By planning, we can prepare for the future so that the future is somewhat under our control. Nonetheless, I am inclined to favour the idea that planning for the future is a good idea since planning for the future can motivate people
