  • - Om at overleve i en verden med ubegrænsede muligheder
    af Barry Schwartz
    145,95 kr.

    Mennesker skal i dag foretage flere valg end nogensinde før. Vi skal vælge næsten alt i vores liv: fra tøjmærke, feriemål og telefonselskab til uddannelse, pensionsordning og religion. Man kunne tro, at denne totale frihed ville gøre livet mere lykkeligt, men det viser sig at være modsat: Valgfriheden bliver en byrde, som stresser os og giver os en følelse af frustration og utilfredshed.Hvor godt vi lykkes med at håndtere de mange valg, hænger sammen med vores personlighed, mener Barry Schwartz. Han påviser, at der er en direkte sammenhæng mellem vores måde at vælge på og en af tidens store folkelidelser, depression.I sin tankevækkende bog vil Schwartz inspirere os til at se på vore valg på en ny måde. Han præsenterer læseren for 11 skridt til, hvordan man kan forenkle sin tilværelse midt i valgfrihedens kultur og dermed komme til at leve et mere harmonisk og tilfredsstillende liv.Barry Schwartz er professor i psykologi og social teori ved et af USA's mest ansete universiteter, Swarthmore College.

    An eye-opening, groundbreaking tour of the purpose of work in our lives, showing how work operates in our culture and how you can find your own path to happiness in the workplace.Why do we work? The question seems so simple. But Professor Barry Schwartz proves that the answer is surprising, complex, and urgent. Weve long been taught that the reason we work is primarily for a paycheck. In fact, weve shaped much of the infrastructure of our society to accommodate this belief. Then why are so many people dissatisfied with their work, despite healthy compensation? And why do so many people find immense fulfillment and satisfaction through menial jobs? Schwartz explores why so many believe that the goal for working should be to earn money, how we arrived to believe that paying workers more leads to better work, and why this has made our society confused, unhappy, and has established a dangerously misguided system. Through fascinating studies and compelling anecdotes, this book dispels this myth. Schwartz takes us through hospitals and hair salons, auto plants and boardrooms, showing workers in all walks of life, showcasing the trends and patterns that lead to happiness in the workplace. Ultimately, Schwartz proves that the root of what drives us to do good work can rarely be incentivized, and that the cause of bad work is often an attempt to do just that. How did we get to this tangled place? How do we change the way we work? With great insight and wisdom, Schwartz shows us how to take our first steps toward understanding, and empowering us all to find great work.

    Part of the TED series: Why We WorkWhy do we work? The question seems so simple. But Professor Barry Schwartz proves that the answer is surprising, complex and urgent. We've long been taught that the reason we work is primarily for a paycheck. In fact, we've shaped much of the infrastructure of our society to accommodate this belief. Then why are so many people dissatisfied with their work, despite healthy compensation? And why do so many people find immense fulfillment and satisfaction through "e;menial"e; jobs? Schwartz reveals exactly how the false idea that the goal for work should be pay came to be, how we came to believe that paying workers more leads to better work, and why this has made our society confused, unhappy and has established a dangerously misguided system. Ultimately, Schwartz proves that the root of what drives us to good work can rarely be incentivized, and that the cause of bad work is often an attempt to do just that. With great insight and wisdom, Schwartz illuminates the path for readers to take their first steps toward understanding, empowering us all to find great work. Schwartz is also the author of The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less, which has been translated into twenty languages. He can be seen discussing his ideas in his TEDTalks The Paradox of Choiceand Using Our Practical Wisdom.

    Whether were buying a pair of jeans, ordering a cup of coffee, selecting a long-distance carrier, applying to college, choosing a doctor, or setting up a 401(k), everyday decisionsboth big and smallhave become increasingly complex due to the overwhelming abundance of choice with which we are presented.As Americans, we assume that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction. But beware of excessive choice: choice overload can make you question the decisions you make before you even make them, it can set you up for unrealistically high expectations, and it can make you blame yourself for any and all failures. In the long run, this can lead to decision-making paralysis, anxiety, and perpetual stress. And, in a culture that tells us that there is no excuse for falling short of perfection when your options are limitless, too much choice can lead to clinical depression.In The Paradox of Choice, Barry Schwartz explains at what point choicethe hallmark of individual freedom and self-determination that we so cherishbecomes detrimental to our psychological and emotional well-being. In accessible, engaging, and anecdotal prose, Schwartz shows how the dramatic explosion in choicefrom the mundane to the profound challenges of balancing career, family, and individual needshas paradoxically become a problem instead of a solution. Schwartz also shows how our obsession with choice encourages us to seek that which makes us feel worse.By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counter intuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on those that are important and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.

    The surest route to a happier, more productive life and future Most of us want to succeed. And most of us want to do the right thing. But we often forget that the way to succeed is by doing the right thing, as Barry Schwartz and Kenneth Sharpe remind us in Practical Wisdom: The Right Way to Do the Right Thing. When the institutions that shape our society need to change, the people in them typically either make more rules or offer smarter incentives. But there is a better way, and in this lively and provocative book, Schwartz and Sharpe explore the essential principle of problem solving that can transform our lives: practical wisdom. A concept that Aristotle identified millennia ago and that new scientific research reveals is as crucial today as it was in ancient Greece, practical wisdom is the essential human quality that combines the fruits of our individual experiences with our empathy and intellect. Its how we learn to be a good friend or parent or doctor or soldier or citizen or statesman. Its how we come to understand, as the authors write, the right way to do the right thing in a particular circumstance, with a particular person, at a particular time. In Practical Wisdom, Schwartz and Sharpe explain the importance of wisdom in our daily lives and show how to combat work situations that squeeze it out of our practices. They introduce us to what they call the canny outlaws, people with the wisdom to work around the calcified conventions of business as usual to achieve inspiring and satisfying results in daily life. And they identify System Changers, people who are building new, more rewarding, and ultimately more effective ways to work. The result is a book that helps us understand that wisdom is above all a practical idea. What the world needs now is more people with practical wisdom and more institutions that allow them to display it. And this is the book to teach us how to identify and cultivate it.
