@OmSigDAVID,
I don't think so Dave - I think it's more about desire. The idea that once you have attained something it loses value.

Hope you don't mind me calling you Dave.

Well, the issue is whether when u have what u wanted
and become familiar with it, then your desire to get it is reduced
and u can forget about it safely (unless it requires maintenance).
