for the present? or for the future?

I saw this on a new blog I just started following, Boyd Bettis.

We must decide whether we want our ministry to count,
In the momentary applause of popular recognition
Or in the reproduction of our lives in a few chosen people
Who will carry on our work after we have gone.
Really it is a question of which generation we are living for.

I know that I tend to focus on what I’m done now  more than preparing for the future.

Where do you see yourself standing?  For the present?  Or for the future?
