Principle #3 – The paradox of choice

FOMO is real and pervasive and it has existed since we decided that it would be a good idea to choose for ourselves what is right and wrong, what is good and evil.

There are so many decisions to make in life. How do you decide what to do? How do you feel happy with your decision, not knowing how you would have felt if you had picked something else?

Freedom of choice isn’t really freedom when it comes with slavery to anxiety, comparison, and disappointment.

The first step towards the solution is agency not autonomy. “Real agency only arises in the context of submission to things you did not make yourself (Matthew Crawford).” Submission to an objective standard of truth; submission to the determination of right and wrong, good and evil, by the creator not the created.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing which I feel I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m having a look forward to your next put up, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

    1. Hey Alex! I completely agree that it isn’t as easy to do as it is to write. I believe this concept is what the author is referring to in Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” If so, although this is an important principle, it is only the beginning!
