Decision and Choice

SELECT ALL: Can you have too many choices?

Cool article/book review in the New Yorker for The Paradox of Choice, a book about how having too many choices can paralyze you, something that I'm often guilty of.

A great quote in the intro:

"A radio producer in Washington, D.C., got a promotion a few years ago on the grounds that he was a “good decision-maker.” Self-deprecating to a fault, he reminded his bosses that many of the decisions he’d made since joining the station hadn’t exactly worked out They didn’t care. “Being a good decision-maker means you’re good at making decisions,” one executive cheerily told him. “It doesn’t mean you make good decisions."
