Yo, listen up! I was just hired to write this book about focus and achieving goals, and there’s this dope hack that I think you should know about. It’s all about dopamine, fam. And I’m here to show you how you can use it to level up your smoke sesh and spice things up, ya feel me?
So let me break it down for you. Dopamine is like the pleasure molecule, but some scientists say it’s more about anticipating pleasure than actually feeling it. This neuroscientist dude, Dr. Robert Sapolsky, did a study with monkeys and found that their dopamine levels spiked when they expected a reward, not when they actually got it. So basically, dopamine motivates us to seek rewards and do dope stuff.
Now here’s where it gets real interesting. Just thinking about smoking weed can trigger a dopamine spike, no cap. Your brain is already hyped up, ready to get you motivated to do all the steps before you even light up that joint. You know the drill: find your stash, grab a nug, grind it up, roll it, spark it, and enjoy!
But check this out. Dopamine is all about completing tasks and getting that sweet reward. And here’s the kicker: the Mind loves organized chaos. When things are uncertain and rewards happen only sometimes, dopamine goes crazy. That’s why people go wild in casinos. There’s a system in place, rules to follow, but there’s also an element of chance.
So how can we use all this knowledge to our advantage? Well, my homies, we can create our own system to boost productivity and make tasks more enjoyable with the help of weed. I present to you: the Spinner Wheel of Dank!
This is how it goes down. Say you got some work to do, like writing an article or doing reports. Break that shit down into milestones, like completing a chapter or finishing a certain amount of words. And at the end of each milestone, you get to spin the wheel, fam.
The Spinner Wheel of Dank is your personal reward system. You can make it digital or even make a physical spinner wheel, there’s tutorials online for that. Customize it with rewards that you actually want, mostly weed-related activities but you can add other stuff too. Make it fun, invite a friend to smoke with you, or add chores and wellness activities to keep it balanced.
Here’s the key though: commit to whatever the wheel lands on. If it says you gotta wash the car, don’t be a punk and spin again. Embrace the challenge and get shit done. Even if you “lose” and have to do something you don’t particularly enjoy, remember that you’re still getting shit done and leveling up your productivity game.
Now here’s the beauty of it all. As you complete tasks and spin that wheel, each reward will feel even better because you earned it, my friend. The pleasure of getting high or enjoying any activity on that wheel will be enhanced because you know you accomplished something. And those not-so-fun tasks won’t feel as heavy anymore because they’re part of a game.
So give this a try, fam. Gamify your life and harvest that dopamine on command. It’s all about getting addicted to getting shit done and enjoying the process. Let me know how it goes, aight?!
