Forgo short term pleasures and build a system that will make you win big.
Most likely you know the fable of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. This story shows that it is only when you build your house from bricks that you can conquer the obstacles and win. Doing what’s easy will make your life hard.
Make sure you know what you want in life.
If you don’t know, you will succumb to things that give you short-term pleasure.
Think of building your system as deferred gratification.
At the end of the day, you will get the pleasure you desire, once you accomplish something great.
