In Western cultures there is a tendency to use one's current mood as a basis for predicting future moods. Happy now, happy later. Unhappy now, unhappy later. In many Eastern cultures the tendency is the same, but the prediction is opposite. Happy now, unhappy some other time. Things must balance.

That being said, my goal is to use the 'Western' method when I'm happy and the 'Eastern' method when I'm unhappy. Happy/Unhappy now, happy later. Either way, happiness! :)

(Though there is the potential for my misunderstanding these different cultural concepts, as well as my own abilities to achieve my aforementioned goal, it would seem that at least I have an understanding of 'Western' greed.)
