So after my Tony Robbins exploration I ran into another TED video I couldn’t resist watching. It was by a guy who wrote a book. I know, that doesn’t narrow it down.
Oh, it was Barry Schwartz: The Paradox of Choice
It explained a lot of my “nothing is ever good enough” feelings really well. When you expect the amazing, all the time, because society has gotten to the point where you can have so many options that you can’t (seemingly) go wrong, everything goes wrong and you’re left feeling like you could have always made a BETTER choice.
It’s good. I’m not sure how the leap of logic happens between the choices and feeling unhappy and suddenly reallocating everyone’s income and redistributing it…that’s kind of like A+B = Z … but it’s there and it’s something and take from it what you think might help you.
Even just knowing this can help you see your choices in a different way.
And I’m not planning on doing a series on TED videos. Just FYI. I’m hoping this is the last one. These are so self-absorbed it’s not even funny.
