February 2009 - WANT: To get more, want less

This is a repost from my main blog at total amazement. It just so happens that it fits right into the February NaBloPoMo theme of "WANT".

Barry Schwartz: The paradox of choice

Psychologist Barry Schwartz takes aim at a central tenet of western societies: freedom of choice. In Schwartz's estimation, choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied.

As you might have guessed, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't want, but rather learn to know what you want and be satisfied when you get it.


Written for NaBloPoMo, the theme for February is "WANT"
