[book club] Ep. 2.5 – The Willpower Instinct, Chapters 4 & 5 – “License to Sin”

– dopamine is misunderstood (desire, not pleasure)
– desire feels good (sometimes better than the reward)
– desire causes stress (that’s part of its design)

What drives your behavior? Pleasure seeking? Pain avoiding? Working toward a larger goal? Let me know in the comments!
