Supermodel Daria Werbowy graces the cover of the newly released (May 2011) Fashion magazine (Canada’s source for fashion and beauty)
In the accompanying article she speaks about her changing body and mind, saying…
“A lot of people used to tell me I was wise for my age, but they’ve stopped saying that…as I’ve gotten older, I feel like I’ve gotten more confused, which I guess is normal because when you’re in your early 20s you think you know everything.”
Daria is 27. She is successful, accomplished and has a lifetime (in model years) of experience and knowledge behind her.
Which begs the question – why is she so confused?
We have more options today than we’ve ever had before. There are countless opportunities and choices for everything: career, car, house, education, style, travel – take your pick.
But are all these choices making us feel lousy?
Were things better when they were a lot worse?
This is the question that Psychologist Barry Schwartz asks in his famous TED Talk.
In Schwartz’s estimation, choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied and confused.
Have a look and let us know if you have a tried and true method for dealing with choices.
