Why is planning so difficult for us? Or why we seem to fail to honor our plans?
I haven’t answered that question yet, but I think it is all about habits and the need for an instant gratification.
We are used to fast things. Fast cars, fast food, fast access to on-demand entertainment.
The planning is lost. There is no fun in planning if you can get something right now.
But if we learn to delay the small achievement and replace it for a long term bigger one, wouldn’t that be a better strategy?
