Have you ever had a thought that sounded logical and feasible even, then have it followed by another thought of why it’s not going to work then you move on to something else? When your brain gives you reasons why your idea won’t work?

I catch my brain working against me that way quite often too! Like hey, we’re meant to be on the same team here. Can you work as hard to think how I can make this work vs. shooting down my ideas? 🙂

Sounds simple doesn’t it? Here’s what happened 2 days ago that prompted this piece of writing. I needed lunch and since am on bed rest, I couldn’t walk out and buy lunch. There was nothing to eat at home and I had intended to order in McDonalds. Turns out McD’s did not deliver to where I stay (I still don’t believe it!). So I went on Deliveroo and ordered some food. Before finalizing my order, I did a quick search for any discount codes and found 2 that I could use (first time order and get $10 off and AMEX card code for $3.50 off). Sweet.

Tried the discount code and the first time order code did not work! No way! Oh well, at least I still get $3.50 off using my AMEX card. Then I thought, why not email Deliveroo and ask re the first time order code? Yeah, like that’s going to help. I caught my thought process and swiftly decided it would take me all of a 30 second investment in my time. So I sent in an email to the

customer support. 10 minutes later (yeah, Deliveroo was quick!), I received this response:

Hmm, that was easy! Gee, thanks Deliveroo! So here’s a picture of lunch from The Lawn (I love this resto but it’s a bit more pricey than I would like) yesterday that cost me

 

all of $4.30 because I used that $10 credit from Deliveroo + the $3.50 discount from using my Amex Card.

Olive Rice + Char-grilled Cajun Chicken + Salad + Me-so-spicy dressing

And all I did was just ask 🙂
