Too many times I have mistaken “need” for “convenience” and “convenience” for “I’m starving and I need food NOW”. Just because it is convenient, doesn’t mean you need it. For example:
you brought your own healthy lunch today but your work has chipotle carry-in and yes, that is the chili con queso you have been craving for days now. It won’t hurt to get a small plate with chips and half a burrito, right?
Two burritos and half a pound of cheese and chips later you start to question every motive you’ve ever had.
Need vs. Convenience
