Short-Term Gain Can Cause Long-Term Pain

pablo (11) - ST Gain

Here’s what I read to my Fan page audience  in my reading session #7,  the section Short-Term Gain Can Cause Long-Term Pain of the Introduction chapter: The Miracle of Self-Discipline from the book, No Excuses: The Power of Self-Discipline by Brian Tracy. And it goes like this…

Short-Term Gain Can Cause Long-Term Pain

There are two laws that you fall victim to when you fail to practice self-discipline. The first is called the “Law of Unintended Consequences”. This law states that “the unintended consequences of that behavior because of the lack of long-term thinking.”

The second is the “Law of Perverse Consequences,” which says that “a short-term action aimed at immediate gratification can lead to perverse, or the opposite, consequences from those at which it was aimed.”

For example, you might make an investment of time, money, or emotion with the desire and intent to be better off and happier as a result. But, because you acted without carefully thinking or doing your homework, the consequences of your behavior turned out to be far worse than if you had done nothing at all. Every person has had his experience, and usually more than once.

I also read the section The Common Denominator of Success.

Both of the sections helped me realize that I need to stay focus with one thing at a time and not be tempted with the “shiny-objects” around me. Are you on the same situation?

Hope you got some value, please like and share. Do you agree with the statement, “Short-Term Gain Can Cause Long-Term Pain”?
