For example, dieting and saving are not so much fun now, but good for the future. When faced with such tradeoffs, we often focus on the short term rather than long term goals and get ourselves into trouble. By understanding where we fall short, there are methods we can use to overcome our natural inclinations. RSVP today at www.fabbsfoundation.org/self-control or call 202-572-3023.
