6 Ways to Find More Time for Yourself
3. Limit Your Options
Whether you're buying an MP3 player, a cell-phone plan, or a leather jacket, you could spend hours researching your options and countless Saturday afternoons schlepping to stores in your quest to find the best. But Barry Schwartz, author of The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less, says don't bother. "It's not worth the effort. There's no way to know if you've ever found 'the best,'" he says. Instead, look at four or five options and pick from there. Sure you might find a better product or price if you look at 50 options, but when you factor in the time and energy that would take, it's probably not such a value.
