More Choice ≠ More Happiness

Every day we encounter people who are overwhelmed with the  number of things in their lives. Whether it’s stuff (dust it, repair it, store it, move it, hoard it, discard it, replace it) or stuff to do (when does it start?, what am I missing?, you want it when? I’m so tired!), we’re all struggling with too many options on too many unsatisfying choices. And often we can’t enjoy the choice we do make for wondering if the one we didn’t might have been better.

This video presentation by Barry Schwartz is an intriguing challenge to the cultural dogma that having more will make us happier.

Breathe deep. Enjoy.
