I heard a new term on a podcast “Net Pleasure”. When you are presented with options life do you consider the net pleasure. Instant gratification often has negative net pleasure. You feel great in the moment but those decisions often take us further from our goals.
If you eat sugar it might feel great in the moment but afterwards you crash, feel gross and it takes you away from your health goals. So your net pleasure was negative.
When you workout or out money in savings taking you towards your goals the net pleasure is positive.
Something I have never put in this aspect when making decisions.
What do you guys think about the idea of net pleasure?!? My workouts kick my butt—they end with positive net pleasure though! I feel better, getting stronger, moving towards my goals!
