Go to a dream home and we’ll find a neighbor with a dreamier home.
Land that dream job and we’ll find colleagues working with a more interesting scope/better manager/cross functional team.
Get that wonderful car and we’ll find someone we know with a superior model.
Our default state is to normalize stuff we might have been dreaming about for the longest time and then look around for upgrades.
Beware that default state.
Happiness follows gratitude – not the other way around.
