Everyone, without fail, thinks that their future self will be better than their current self.

More disciplined. More virtuous. More rational, and less prone to bursts of emotion.Today you can't muster the energy to go to the gym, but tomorrow you'll leap out of bed at the crack of dawn to get a workout in.

Today you procrastinate on that important work, but tomorrow you'll be able to shut out all distractions and get it done.

Today you're spending money you don't have and racking up credit card bills, but you'll tighten your belt tomorrow.

It's almost never true. The best predictor of your behaviour tomorrow is your behaviour today.

Recognise that, accept it, and deal with it. It's your life -- live it today, not tomorrow.
