A Hamburger Now… I’ll Start My “Diet” Tomorrow….

We all do it.  We choose things that are pleasurable now, but not necessarily good for us or our future.

We swiped the credit card for that TV that we shouldn’t have.

We had a few too many drinks and it ended up badly.

We probably shouldn’t have made out with that person on the first date.

We’ve all made bad decisions.  This is called hyperbolic discounting.  What that means is that you are discounting future rewards for immediate pleasure.

It’s important to not continuously fall victim to this.  The hamburger now over long term health benefits, the pizza slice now over a piece of salmon, skipping the gym today to watch TV, are all examples that we’re guilty of.

I urge you to take a long term view.  Figure out what those long term goals are and then don’t discount those for immediate pleasure, you’ll be much more successful in the end.
