To brush, or to brush for 2 minutes, THAT is the question

I have an electric toothbrush conveniently positioned right next to my bathroom sink. But don’t ask me when was the last time I used it. The thing is just having it near the sink makes me feel better, even if I haven’t used it in many months. Something about knowing that I CAN use it gives me peace, and every night I reach for the old-fashioned toothbrush.

I’m sure there’s something psychological going on, kind of like buying a home treadmill feels like you’re already losing weight, even before you’ve ever used it.

What is it in your life that fits this kind of false sense of accomplishment?
