Why You Should Limit Your Choices

Description

Do you have too many choices in your life? 

In 2005, Barry Schwartz wrote The Paradox of Choice. It challenged the traditional thinking that the way to maximum freedom is to maximize choice. 

Too many choices are not necessarily a good thing. They can create paralysis. No matter what you choose, you'll always wonder if you could have done better.

Here's my advice to you:

1) Limit choices. Narrow your list to items you have already experienced. Having every option won't serve you.

2) Be sure to permit yourself to try other possibilities IF needed - but only after you've vetted your first.

3) Stay in your lane and keep things simple. 

Too many choices are part of modern life. If you can't decide, shorten your list of what is essential.
