To put it another way, do anything you want right now, regardless of the long-term implications.
The most common context in which I’ve seen it used is as follows:
You’re being encouraged to do whatever “pleasant” thing you desire, regardless of how wicked or bad it is, and while doing these “pleasant” things, you’re being encouraged to deliberately ignore the future consequences at any cost, whether it’s untimely death or even hell.
The most widely accepted concept is that you pay now and pay later.
