I’ll Do It Later: Why It’s So Hard to Do the Better Thing Now
It’s always tempting to do the thing that’s more enjoyable in the moment, rather than the thing that’s better for us in the long run (like, eat junk food instead of vegetables; stay up late rather than get a good night’s sleep; scroll social media rather than working on that big report). Why do we set ourselves up for trouble–and how do we convince ourselves to make those better choices in the moment?
- Why do people make choices in the present that they know they’ll be unhappy about in the future?
- Do some people do this ‘temporal discounting’ more?
- What role does being overwhelmed play in these shortsighted choices?
- How can planning help make better choices?
- How can we help people ‘feel the future’ more so they can make better choices in the present?
Join us for an interesting discussion about how to make better choices now.

FIND YOUR STRENGTHS
with Caroline Sugarman
Caroline will introduce you to the Kolbe Assessment. This unique tool goes far beyond the familiar Myer’s-Briggs Test, by revealing how you naturally attack problems, deal with challenges, or pursue your passions.
This natural bent is called Conation. I had no idea what it meant, but wow, it was revealing and helpful. Ava and I found it transformed how we dealt with work, and how we related to each other. In fact, we’ve had every person who works with us get the assessment. I can’t do it justice here, but I agree with Dr. Edward Hallowell who wrote, “Conation is the most powerful idea in psychology that no one has ever heard of.”
Caroline is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), Kolbe Certified™ Consultant, CQ Certified Facilitator, ESCI Accredited Coach and a highly experienced leader of personal and organizational transformation seminars.
