The power of treats

Humans love treats. We love getting more than we expected. Whether it’s a thrift store bargain, a big chocolate chip in a biscuit, a GroupOn discount on the very perfume you’ve had your eye on or the smell of rain when you walk out of the house, when we aren’t expecting something lovely and it happens we feel like we are winning.


Today is my favourite coffee shops’s 2nd birthday and they gave us Lindor balls with our flat whites. What a sweet thing. They didn’t announce to the world ‘Free chocolate with coffees today to celebrate our birthday’ to try to work it for their advantage. They just did it. I love that.
