Too much! Why more is less
A whopping 80% of Americans feel like they are losing the battle when it comes to getting organized. One of the biggest drivers? Overload. We think that more is better, but is it really?
Today, Sarah and Alicia talk about having too much on your plate, and why more is less.
In this episode we sit down with the fascinating Swarthmore professor (and TED speaker), Barry Schwartz, author of The Paradox of Choice, to discuss how our society of “too much choice” causes us to accumulate more than we could ever need or want, why that ultimately makes us unhappy, and finally, why it paralyzes us when it comes time to deal with it. You will think differently about your stuff and come away with practical strategies you can put to work to conquer the clutter more effectively.
We all deal with the “paradox of choice” everyday, shopping at the grocery store, at work and at home. The truth of the matter is, once we cut down on overload, we can be more efficient and proactive. Less is really is more!
So take the next few minutes to sit back and listen to our show, you don’t want to miss these great tips on how to deal with the burden of too much!
