There is no denying that choice improves the quality of our lives. It enables us to control our destinies and to come close to getting exactly what we want out of any situation.
The fact that some choice is good doesn’t mean that more choice is better.
We would be better off if we embraced certain voluntary constraints on our freedom of choice, instead of rebelling against them.
We would be better off seeking what is “good enough” instead of seeking the best.
We would be better off if we lowered our expectations about the results of decisions.
We would be better off if the decisions we made were non-reversible.
We would be better off if we paid less attention to what others around us were doing.
