Everything You Can't Have

March 30, 2023

This episode covers a hard topic about money: What you want more than anything is everything you can't have.

Your brain doesn’t want stuff. It doesn’t even want new stuff. It wants to engage in the process and anticipation of getting new stuff. 

The change, not the amount, is what matters.

When it comes to happiness and money, it's not about how much you have. It's about the change in how much you have.
