You don't believe that or else you wouldn't have gone to college which is gratifying but hardly instant. Now if you were given an honorary diploma instantly rather than working hard for it, I doubt it would mean the same to you. It's not the sheepskin that counts.

I would have MUCH rather received an honorary diploma than one I had to work for. A college degree these days is more of a "I can spend 4 years following rules" certificate than a record of having learned something.

The problem with instant gratification isn't the instant part, it's the fact that it usually requires some sort of trade-off that isn't worth it. Sometimes it doesn't, though.

If I offered you $1,000 out of the kindness of my heart you'd take it, right? That's some awesome instant gratification.

No I would not......

If I told my wife that I took $1000 "out of kindness" from a guy named "JOE POLE", I am pretty sure there would be some sort of trade-off that wouldn't be worth it!
