I propose to complement Ainslie's idea of "bargaining with you future selves" with that of "shaping your past selves." The result of such a complementation is that an action can work in two ways: (1) as a predecent for future behavior and (2) as a shaper of past behavior. I argue that this diminishes the unwanted effects of hyperbolic discounting even further.
