Current Commitments and Future Satisfaction

Response to @Cubes Day 75, Nothing

We all bury ourselves in, frankly, an absurd amount of commitments. We think our work now will build up to happiness in our future. We bury ourselves in work now, so that our future selves can do less or enjoy more.

Yet, our future selves always want more. The immediate satisfaction our prior selves experienced upon completing a task or acquiring something is lost over time.

Indeed, doing nothing is an amazing thing to do. It's time to rest and think, something we should treasure as a luxury, and not something we should minimise.


Don't mind me if my blog goes down in the coming day. I'm... figuring stuff out.
