[The Tim Ferriss Show] The Choice-Minimal Lifestyle: 6 Formulas for More Output and Less Overwhelm 


The paradox of choice

  1. The more options you consider the more regret you will have (buyers regret)
  2. The more options you encounter the less fulfilling the final outcome will be

The choice minimal lifestyle

  1. Considering options cost attention that can't be spent on action (sense of overwhelm)
  2. Attention is necessary for productivity and appreciation


  1. Set rules to automate decision making
  2. Don’t provoke deliberation until you can take action
  3. Don’t postpone decisions just to avoid uncomfortable conversations
  4. Learn to make non-fatal or non-reversible decisions quickly (Set time limits for decision and options, set financial thresholds)
    1. Decision fatigue is a thing (we all have a limited amount of decision making power)
  5. Don’t strive for variation and thus increased options when it is not needed (routine routine routine, daily rituals (book))
    1. Embrace routine, remove decision making from what you can
    2. Nutrition vs enjoying food
    3. exercise vs enjoyment sport
  6. Regret is past tense decision making
    1. Stop making complaints (21 day no complaint experiment)
    2. Remove wasted past tense deliberation
