Anthony’s Note: This is a guest post from Karl Staib, author of Bring Gratitude.
Last summer I was at lunch with a friend. I fell back into an old habit.
My friend went to the bathroom and I did what I always do. I pulled out my phone.
I already had Amazon open and I was flipping through some of the books I was interested in buying. Then I saw the book I wanted was $2 cheaper than last week. Tap and it was on its way. I got my little dopamine rush just before my friend came back to the table.
He sat down and I put my phone down. Just like that, I was $12.76 lighter and a proud owner of a new book. It was a book I wanted, but I have a queue of 6 books waiting for me: 2 on my phone and 4 on my nightstand.
