We like to make choices. But can there be too many choices and what is the effect? I heard Dr. Sheena Iyengar speak on the subject. She said the number of items in a grocery store has risen from 37,000 to over 100,000 in a couple of decades. Do we need that many choices of jam? She reported that when we are overloaded, we procrastinate, make worse choices and often feel less satisfied with our choice.
A retreat center is a good place to take a deep breath and make good choices. It is an art and it takes time and information.
