Thinking about the future

How can we know the difference between the future thinking mind that we try to get back to present time, and planing mind that plan future things that are needed like projects etc.?

Andy's Answer:

We can differentiate between forward thinking which is conscious and forward thinking which is habitual and also between forward thinking which is productive and forward thinking which is unproductive. I think we instinctively know which is which. A mind which is just rambling and wandering with no direction is fine of course, but it often leads to discomfort and a restless state. But when we are consciously thinking of the future, then we are actually in the present! The mind is relaxed and clear. We are just thinking of the future in the present.
