The paradox of choice

Barry Schwartz takes aim at a central tenet of western societies: freedom of choice. In Schwartz’s estimation, choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied.
THE PARADOX OF CHOICE

I would like for you to consider if having more choices in your life makes it easier for you. Especially with money decisions. Today we are asked to make decisions on financial issues, but we have limited skills in this area- if any. We are asked to choose where we are going to place our hard earn money: in a 401k, 457 , TSP or 403b retirement system. What mutual fund is best for us is left up to us to decide. Most of us LEOs do not have the background or knowledge to make an educated decision and later we fail to reach our financial goals. Were we set up for failure as LEOs, or have we gotten to the point where no one wants to make a decision? Well folks, listen to Dr. Schwartz, share with other LEO/Military and let me know what you think.

Thanks,
THE PARADOX OF CHOICE
