How badly do you want it?
In the moment you may feel that this isn't a want, it's a need.
Why did I say that?
Sometimes our impulses lead us to say things that we might regret.
As your self-monitoring improves, you'll probably become more aware of when you feel the impulse to act, say or do something.
Fancy this, fancy that
Sometimes you're really excited about a new interest and spend a lot of money on it. Only to realize shortly after, it isn't the right hobby for you.
Wait, how much?
It can be very easy to get wrapped up in what we want to buy.
