I think that's why I'm now able to live in the present so much- thrive in it- yet still consider my future self and outcomes. The Rise of Superman, a wonderful book about the state of Flow, does a great job discussing this.
Yep, i've read about it...and it makes sense. It's all about being able to wait a bit in order to get a bigger reward later versus having it now and compromise the future. Has you said, it's a balancing act.
About that book, i'm going to get it , seems interesting :)
