The Prof's points definitely have merit. On the other hand, I think that any practical proposal to limit choice would probably do more harm than good.

IMHO the best solution is to teach people how to deal with choice in a productive way, part of which includes not getting too hung up on past decisions that haven't worked out.

Really like the blog!
