They rhyme don't they? 

I don't have any solutions or sagely tips, just wanted to mention that I notice this correlation in my life.  So many things to fix!!

If we put the benefits on one side of the scale, and the "trouble" or "annoyance" of just "doing it" quickly, right now, 'get-it-over-with-already-now' on the other side, the choice should be simple! Right? Wrong! We will (almost) always choose the easier, simpler (yet often stupider) way first. Why suffer discomfort even for a minute? We like to feel good, calm, no waves in my pool - comfortable. Why mess that up?

It's our choice to pick a little discomfort now, in order to heal, recover, and live a happy, healthy, sane and useful life. The choice seems much easier when put that way. It even feels quite good to make the right choices now.

rationally speaking, and when i feel "sane"  - I agree with everything you stated DavidT...trouble is I go downhill into temporary mild insanity way too frequently.. then all bets are off!
