There's a very similar question on askmefi but I didn't really find anything which worked for me. What are some ways to delay instant gratification and ignoring your urgent immediate ideas and cravings? I struggle with this mostly in my work and my binge eating. How do you focus on what you want most (in the long term) when what you want NOW seems so loud and urgent?
