Everyone likes pleasure – who doesn’t like feeling good?

However, there is a distinction that needs to be made.

Short-term pleasure. And long-term pleasure.

Short-term pleasure is the video game, the hook-up, the candy, the act of laying in bed, etc. It may seem glamorous, but it isn’t.

Long-term gain is reading the book, the long-term committed relationship, the glass of water, the act of getting your clothes ready for the next morning, etc.

Life is full of opportunities for short-term pleasure and long-term pleasure. Just remember that long-term pleasure is satisfying to the core.
