The Psychology-defying Motivation

Human motivation is highly influenced by how imminent the reward is perceived to be — meaning, the further away the reward is, the more you discount its value. This is often referred to as present bias, or hyperbolic discounting.

I guess that makes a Muslim a superhero; his reward is further away than anything else, yet he strives to please His Lord & puts his eternally blissful reward in his perspective at all times.
