I have never legitimately gone through with it, but I think I am going to try to remove as many sources of pleasure as possible. It gets in the way. To clarify, pleasure in a negative sense: putting music on when you work - something small, but I realize how much it distracts me now. I cannot focus 100%.
Furthermore, hedonism corrupts at its core.
If you put simplistic pleasure above what you know you should be doing, you create psychological suffering. Hopefully by addressing this issue, for me, upfront, I can call it out and deal with it proactively instead of being a pussy about it.
What are your thoughts?
