Human brain is hardwired to place a high value on decisions that have immediate impacts. Just like other species, our ancestors spent their days to think of how to neutralize threats, such as securing the next meal, avoid a predator or finding a shelter to sleep. Actually, the way we live has taught us to take actions that have instant and clear results — it is called instant gratification.

By digging into such attitude of achieving pleasure without delay, we will realize that our brain gets used to prefer quick payoffs and the distant future becomes less of a concern.
