I want it now!

Came across this quote today …

To succeed in life we need the willpower to outsmart our desire for instant gratification.

The expectation of instant gratification is a growing problem.
Today, people want everything now.

I found this in an opinion interview with psychologist Walter Mischel (New Scientist, 27-Sep-2014).


  1. Difficult. People these days want that instant pleasure.
    I enjoy the desire and the discipline of waiting for the right time.
    It's like opening your Xmas presents a week in advance.
