Productivity Tip for Students: Think Distant Before Short-Term

An ant, with great effort, was dragging a portion of a leaf several times its size towards its home, a small hole in the ground. On the way, it came across a small crack – a crevasse for its size – on the ground. Unable to find a way to go across, the ant stopped. It stayed there for a while trying different things, but couldn’t find a way. Eventually, after several attempts to find a way around, it put the leaf on the crack and walked over it to cross over to the other side.

After crossing the crack, it resumed its journey and soon reached the hole. What happens next frustrates it.
