Personally, I do believe that a pleasurable consequence or reward is fine as long as it does not go overboard. I see nothing wrong with motivating yourself to push through certain obstacles. If a job can motivate you to reach a certain goal for a bonus than why should it be an issue that you deliver a personal bonus to yourself.
Going overboard would be like when I graduate medical school I will purschase myself a BMW that costs $120,000. Seeing as though after medical school you have residency; you will have rewarded yourself with a car you currently can’t afford with hopes of affording it a few years from now. As long as the reward is not binding future issues then in moderation is fine.
