Barry Schwartz: The Paradox of Choice

136 Relax and Succeed - There's nothing onWe don’t live in the world. We experience our own thinking. And our ego trips us up in two ways: it’s insecure, and it exists in a world of right and wrong. Given a choice the ego will wonder if–or even assume–we’re wrong. And in a world filled with unfathomable choice, this constant second-guess self-flagellation is our daily experience. Is it any wonder people are depressed? They spend all day telling themselves they’re wrong.

Despite the gravity of the subject, Barry’s presentation is warm and funny. And he really does make a compelling argument for creating more happiness by simplifying your life. Enjoy.
