The dilemma of life

   The dilemma of life.  Those things that I want to do, that I 
   desire to do, that would give great pleasure, I shouldn't do 
   because they are bad for me and will make me unhappy in the end 
   (Examples: illicit sex, eating delicious delicacies that taste 
   good but make you gain weight, drinking alcohol, etc.);  and 
   those things that I don't want to do, don't enjoy doing, I 
   should do because they are good for me and will make me happy 
   in the end (Examples: hard work, self-discipline, modesty, 
   taking the time to do a job right, constraining myself to 
   always telling the truth, always doing the right thing, etc.).
