The College Success Habits Podcast

Immediate vs Future Rewards & Gratification

August 31, 2021

Ep 112 - How do you see your future. How are the decisions you are making in the immediate moment guiding and controlling the direction your life travels toward? We have talked about instant gratification, we have talked about delayed gratification - these are topics that are so important they bare revisiting.

The human brain is designed to seek out instant gratification - especially around food. When we start to use external things like booze, drugs, food, TV, and our smart phone to buffer away any real connection to our emotions we are actually letting the ancient brain override our rational thought - thus we fall in line with instinctual actions and behaviors, rather than being in control over those same hard-wired habits. 

Interest piqued? Good - you are in the right place, at the right time...right now.

Stand up, step forward, raise your hand - it's your turn, I will call on you.
