Moderate dissatisfaction

Wanting to be a little better is normal. Our brains are configured to be dissatisfied. The moment we get comfortable, boredom kicks in.

Wanting to be a little better is useful. Stagnation is a dangerous disease with lethargy, cynicism and complacency being its symptoms. A good challenge is the cure.

Moderate dissatisfaction is a feature rather than a bug. It has to be moderate – if dissatisfaction is too little or too large, it fails to get us off the couch.
