Wants vs Want-to-wants

We all have wants and want-to-wants.

Wants  (Ws) are visceral pulls towards things. It's the inner baby in us that yells "mine" and grabs. It's impulsive, out of our control, and has no moral compass.

Want-to-wants (W2Ws) are the ideal wants of our best self. These are the "eating healthy food", "reading more", "waking early". If we had a choice, all our wants would be replaced with want-to-wants.

Self improvement lies in our ability to manifest our W2Ws. To get there, we'll need introspection, courage, and habit design.

Oh, and we'll have to want to change too.
