I just read this article on he blog of Tim Ferris, currently my favorite author and inspiration for what I hope to be some serious life-changing events. The article discusses “the choice effect,” which boils down to “the more choices we are given, the less satisfied we tend to be” because we’re always suffering from buyer’s remorse. Put this into the context of a relationship, and it’s an interesting read.
Note that it is a guest article written by Claire Williams, not by Ferris himself. Still, I enjoyed the article, and found it somewhat relevant to my current state.
UPDATE: Along the same lines, check out this talk at the TED conference by Barry Schwartz.
