Our beliefs about how much personal control people have over their lives, which are shaped in part by the level of individualism to which we have been exposed, also play an important role in our preferences for allocating choice.

we are the sum of our choices. Perhaps all three—destiny, chance, and choice—contribute to where and how we end up, but choice alone gives us some measure of control, allows us to actively participate in our own making. Choice provides the opportunity to make the most of whatever destiny and chance send our way. And when things don’t go according to plan, choice enables us to recover, survive, and even thrive.

paradoxically, asking for more choice is also an admission that we don’t always know what we want, or that we are changeable enough that we cannot know what we want until we are in the moment of choosing. And it’s clear that after a certain point, the amount of time and energy directed toward choosing counteracts the benefits of the choice. So why do we persist in our pursuit of greater choice?

We have to notice all the options, compare them to figure out the differences, remember our assessments, and then use these assessments to assign rankings. Due to our limitations, each step becomes more and more overwhelming as the options increase

Nobody wants to agonize over every little decision, and nobody should have to, but if choice is about freedom and exercising control, are we betraying ourselves by pretending that we make meaningful choices as consumers?

Keeping the bigger picture in mind allows us to reconcile the multitudes we contain, as long as we are also careful to clearly communicate to the world our broader guiding principles. To be ourselves while remaining adaptable, we must either justify a decision to change as being consistent with our identity, or we must acknowledge that our identity itself is malleable but no less authentic for it.

What you see determines how you interpret the world, which in turn influences what you expect of the world and how you expect the story of your life to unfold.
