We achieve breakthroughs because of restraints, not because of endless options.
There’s a reason we feel satisfied when someone removes the cashews at a party; it eliminates the temptation to snack on them.
Our willpower is generally weak. And a surfeit of choice further aggravates self-control problems. Even worse, we transmit vices to others.
When we have a limited offer or altogether remove what we can use, eat, etc., we’re more cautious in our entire approach.
Constriction is a life-enhancing passport to better decision making, a challenge of a challenge that forces us to cope with what we already have.
Less is best, and more. Everything else appears as a nice-to-have pleasant surprise.
