"It’s a pleasant delusion to believe that all our problems require hard solutions. This way we feel interesting, get to do challenging things and become more attractive to members of our preferred sex. If you’re constantly feeling tired it’s tempting to become concerned about your iron levels, consider painting your ceiling a relaxing shade of ochre and look into buying a new pillow that fits your personality better. But you probably just need to go to bed a bit earlier. Perhaps on some level of consciousness we find it hard to believe that anything simple could possibly make a dent in our problems, which as we already know are of course really difficult and can only be solved by a super-genius such as ourselves."

Never take anything away.

People are always more unhappy to losing something, than they were happy about getting it in the first place.  There is a word for this: Loss aversion -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loss_aversion

If I gave you a beautiful car to drive around for a year, and then showed up and took it away, would you be grateful for the free ride?  No.  You would be pissed off because I took it back.  That’s human nature.  

So, never take anything away.
