I think life is all about balancing on the edge between both.

You continuously try to learn and reoptimize from received feedback. You study for school because future, you furiously masturbate because pleasure, now. You take a shitty job in expectation of better jobs, you eat 3 bars of chocolate to deal with stress of shitty job. 🤷
