Why Making Choices Is So Hard
In a thought-provoking article, Orson Scott Card examines the book, "The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less" by Barry Schwartz.
Are you a Maximizer or a Satisficer?
You'll have to read it to find out!
Here's an excerpt:
"Why is it that even though we live in the richest country in the world and have an enormous number of choices we can make every day, we Americans show signs of being unhappier than we were thirty or fifty years ago?
Why are so many people so much more depressed?
Why are people who have everything so dissatisfied?
In the book The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less, Barry Schwartz takes a scientific and logical look at why it might be that Americans feel so oppressed in the midst of freedom, so unhappy in the midst of plenty."
I highly recommend reading the article in full Here- Why Making Choices Is So Hard
You'll be glad you did.
