“Learning to choose is hard. Learning to choose well is harder. And learning to choose well in a world of unlimited possibilities is harder still, perhaps too hard.”
Barry Schwartz, The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less

“Focus on what makes you happy, and do what gives meaning to your life”
Barry Schwartz, The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less

“When asked about what they regret most in the last six months, people tend to identify actions that didn’t meet expectations. But when asked about what they regret most when they look back on their lives as a whole, people tend to identify failures to act.”
Barry Schwartz, The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less
