Is there too much choice in the world? Does it lead to more anxiety and indecisiveness?

This video from RSA makes some interesting points. Thats choices in your life are a social matter, not just your decision, which leads to anxiety. What others think about your choices. That people are always looking for the ideal choice, which leads to dissatisfaction, and that a choice will always lead to a lose of some kind. For example you take a job for one company, but you know others think you should work somewhere else for more money, you always think about this and become dissatisfied, and think about the other job you turned down.

The video then goes on to make some very interesting points about how capitalism is effecting our lives. Its a really interesting video and a must watch if you have concerns about the way the world works today.
