“Nikhedonia” is an obscure English word referring to the pleasure that comes from anticipating success or good fortune. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in this emotion as long as it doesn’t interfere with actually doing the work that leads to success or good fortune. Problem is, nikhedonia makes some folks lazy. Having experienced the thrill of imagining victory, it’s hard to buckle down and slog through gritty details needed to manifest victory. Don’t be like that. Enjoy your nikhedonia, then finish the task that brings a second, even stronger wave of gratification.
