We buy more when we go to the grocery hungry. We buy more as soon as we get paid. And we definitely buy more when there’s a sale.
The urgency to spend is like the urgency to share. If we’re slacking, we feel compelled to share more to make up for the vacancy.
Buying, like sharing, is a never-ending game where we win and we lose at the same time. We win instant gratification. But we lose our bank accounts and our focus, the two currencies of the 21st century.
Emotions dictate our propensity to consume and like. Buying and sharing make us feel good and and curb our fears against missing out.
Managing money and managing your Twitter or Facebook account require
some moderation; debt and defriending/unfollowing are just around the corner.
If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:
1. Read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
2. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
