Temporal Discounting: The Battle Between Present and Future Self

Temporal Discounting: The Battle Between Present and Future Self

“As humans, we tend to favour our present self at the expense of our future self. Our present self will eat an extra piece of cake, skip a training session, drink too much, stay up late, or procrastinate; our future self is left dealing with the consequences. This phenomenon is called temporal discounting. The further in the future the consequences, the least we pay attention to them.”¬†Anne-Laure Le Cunff offers strategies to help us make better decisions now that will lead to better outcomes in the future.
