Research shows that we are very bad at predicting the emotional effects of our purchases. Most people think that a purchase will make them happier than it ends up being after they make the actual purchase. This has not been the case with my Model S. In fact, it has far surpassed my expectations which has led me to wonder what else have I purchased that has far exceeded my expectations. I'd like to pose the question to the group. What purchases have you made (other than your Model S) that you consider far exceeded your exceptions and were in some ways life changing? For me, it was laser eye surgery to correct nearsightedness. To this day, I still feel as if it was one of the best decisions of my life.
