Short term

  • Ugh I don't feel like doing it
  • What if I do some now and some later?
  • Nah I don't want to
  • I'll do it later it's not that much
  • I can watch netflix/Youtube for an hour

You feel a sense of happiness and gratification for a second, a minute, an hour, a day, maybe even a week.

But it's 2 weeks, 3 weeks, a month, a YEAR from now when you are going to look back and say "If only I did what I was supposed to do when I said I would do it."

Long term

  • Wow I don't have to do this since i already did it
  • This is a result from me starting early
  • I'm so glad I did this beforehand
  • I don't have to worry
  • Hard work
  • Hard work
  • Hard. Work.

Start now. Not later. It'll feel so much better in the long run.
