Life is long term in the sense that what we do today goes a long way affecting how our future would be. A lot of people just think short term just because the do not see the end in view. They do things just because of the present gain and they do not think of how today's decision can affect tomorrow's events.
Even if the decision you make does not pay in the short term, its like an investment for the future. A very good example is the relationships we heep. A lot of people can't keep relationships for long because they only think of what they can gain presently and once that is achieved, they move on to look out for another one and most times looking for how to be the only to gain, that in a way being a parasite.
The gain is supposed to be in both ways and not one-sided.
Even if it is not paying now learn to delay gratification.
Always think long term, because it pays before you know it.
