The Two Types of Hunger

first_imgThere are two very different types of hunger. The first type is the hunger you feel when you want or need something now, like food, water, shelter, a new smart phone, an 85-inch television, or a Bugatti. This hunger is impetuous and feels urgent, even though much of the hunger is anything but urgent (no one ever died from a lack of Bugatti). This part of your hunger is insatiable and, except for food and water and shelter, feeding this hunger only increases your appetite.The second type of hunger is the hunger for what you really want. It isn’t a hunger for the things you want now, but it is instead a hunger for the things you want later, the person you will become. This hunger is “be more, do more, have more, and contribute more,” not just “have more.” It’s a different type of hunger altogether.Feeding the first type of hunger, let’s call it “Present You Hunger,” often means starving what we might call “Future You Hunger.”Feeding Present YouThe time and energy and money you invest in acquiring the things you want now deprive you of using those same resources in the future, time especially, it being your single, finite, non-renewable resource.What’s challenging here is the way we perceive time. We feel a sense of urgency around the things we want now without feeling a similar urgency about what we want in the future.Feeding Future You FirstThere is an age-old desire to make sure you feed Future You. It requires self-discipline, willpower, or what I call “Me Management,” but it is an easier shift than most people believe. The simple hack that ensures you become more, do more, have more, and contribute more is to feed future you first (very much like eating a healthy meal to crowd out the desire for something less healthy).What do you need to do now to become who you want to be in the future?What do you need to do now to have what you want in the future?What do you need to do now to contribute more later?Not DeprivationThere is a balance here. Present You Hunger doesn’t need to be eliminated completely. It just needs to be kept in check. It’s important that you be future-oriented while also living in the present. Dealing with “Future You Hunger” first allows you to live in the present without risking Future You. Essential Reading!

Baylor won 82-21. (AP Photo/Chris O’Meara)TAMPA, Fla. — Baylor recovered after blowing a 17-point lead and losing a star player, beating Notre Dame 82-81 for the NCAA women’s basketball championship Sunday night when 2018 tournament hero Arike Ogunbowale missed a foul shot in the final seconds.Chloe Jackson made a layup to put Baylor ahead with 3.9 seconds left. Notre Dame called timeout and inbounded to Ogunbowale, whose buzzer-beating jumper in the championship game lifted Notre Dame to last year’s title. Ogunbowale was fouled trying for a layup, then missed the first of two free throws with 1.9 seconds remaining. She made the second, but the Irish never got the ball back.ADVERTISEMENT “They just kept doing what we’ve been taught to do, and that’s guard people,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “We just beat the defending national champions. That team is so good, so talented. You’re going to see those guys play at the next level. Wow.”The Lady Bears (37-1) won their first championship in seven years. Mulkey and Baylor have won titles in 2005, 2012 and 2019. The 2012 championship game also pitted the Lady Bears against Muffet McGraw’s Irish in the last meeting of two female coaches for the title.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsBaylor was able to pull off the win without star forward Lauren Cox, who injured her knee in a frightening scene late in the third quarter. The Irish were able to rally from a 14-point deficit in the third quarter to tie it at 78 in the fourth. Jackson then scored a jumper from the foul line, and Jessica Shepard countered with two free throws to tie it, setting up the exciting finish.“We had to do it for LC,” said Jackson, who was named the Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player. “She got us here.

She was the first one to hold the trophy after the game.“I’m one of the leaders on the team, so just to have my voice there (on the bench) and tell them I’m still OK, they told me they were going to do this for me,” Cox said.Mulkey was able to celebrate her third title with her family close by. Daughter Makenzie is on the coaching staff, and infant grandson Kannon Reid was sitting in the front row behind the bench. As the final second ticked off, she hugged her daughter and the rest of the staff at midcourt.With the game tied at 80, Jackson drove with her right hand and hit a layup that bounced off the rim before dropping in.Sunday’s game marked the eighth time in the past 20 years that there have been two women head coaches in the title game but only the second time since 2008. The last time was in 2012 with these same coaches. As of 2018, only 59.5 percent of head coaches in Division I women’s basketball are female.The victory broke a tie for third all-time between Mulkey and McGraw for career NCAA titles. Mulkey has three, placing her behind Geno Auriemma (11) and Pat Summitt (8).TIP-INS: The Irish remained at 999 victories in school history. McGraw has been the coach for 835 of them.STRONG ATTENDANCE: Nearly 275,000 people attended the NCAAs, which ranked eighth all-time, including 20,127 for the title game. It was the highest attendance in over 15 years.“We’ve had a really great championship. Our first and second round numbers is the best we’ve seen in 11 years,” NCAA vice president for women’s basketball Lynn Holzman said.The regionals provided a strong boost. Portland, Oregon, a first-time site, averaged over 11,400 fans and will host again next year. The regional attendance was its highest since the NCAA switched to neutral sites after the 2014 season.

But the Irish have a knack for big comebacks, doing it against UConn in this year’s semifinal and against Mississippi State in last season’s title game, when they rallied from 15 down in the third quarter.Ogunbowale was instrumental in all those victories, forever becoming a part of the Final Four during last year’s title run. She made a shot with one second remaining to beat UConn in the semifinals, then hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with one-tenth of a second left to top the Bulldogs in the title game.Ogunbowale led the charge again Sunday, scoring 17 of her 31 points in the second half. That included a buzzer-beating 3 at the end of the third quarter, sparking an 11-0 Notre Dame run.It helped the Irish that the Lady Bears had to play the last 11 minutes without Cox. She got tangled up with Kalani Brown on the defensive end and went down clutching her left knee with about a minute to go in the third quarter. The 6-foot-4 junior was crying in agony for a few minutes before they took her off the court in a wheelchair. Her mom was tearing up in the stands, and her dad had his hands over his face.“I’m emotional for a lot of reasons, but mostly for Lauren Cox, and I’m so happy,” Mulkey said. “These are tears of joy, but they’re also tears of thinking about injuries.”ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
