Do you believe the past was simpler, or more complex, than the world is now?
Is it more difficult to make decisions in? Is it fundamentally easier, or harder?
Is tomorrow going to be better, or worse, than today was?
There are a set of assumptions so fundamentally deep inside of you that they are very very hard to change. They may not even be changeable. I have no idea. I’m just a guy with a blog.
But I am here from the future, and from the past, with a suggestion.
If you are not a marshmallow eater – in other words, a person that is sacrificing in the present for the future – please, on occasion, eat the marshmallow.
If you are, instead, a person that does eat the marshmallow regularly, try in fact doing the opposite.
In fact, the best thing you can do for yourself is to probably be conscious of what type of person you are, and to deliberately do the opposite, on occasion.
