A healthy way to obsess

The R.A.S. is the tiny portion of your brain that notices yellow cars the moment you consider buying one.

One way to use modern technology to activate the R.A.S. and force multiple “exposures” is to save a relevant image to the lock screen on your smartphone, which research shows the average person sees 110 times per day (perhaps the subject of a separate discussion).

If your focus is on money, save an image of a pile of cash as your default lock-screen photo. You’ll see it multiple times per day, which may unconsciously open your mind to opportunities you may not have seen otherwise.
