If you’ve ever listened to a popular radio station for an extended period of time you’ll know that the same songs are played over and over again.
A lot of people don’t like that.
So that’s why streaming sites such as Spotify have become some popular. Because people want to be able to choose what they listen to, and find an easier way to discover new songs that they’ll like.
It’s the same with TV and Netflix.
We want choice, choice, choice and more choice.
Long gone are the days when the TV listings would decide your night’s entertainment.
But, with choice comes indecision.
It’s the same with dating apps.
A huge chunk of the population swipe through face after face, almost desensitising themselves to the actual people that lie beyond the profile photo and blurb.
When it comes to our lives as a whole now – how is having so much choice affecting our way of thinking?
Relationships, jobs, studies – are we as determined to fight for them when they aren’t going right?
Or, does such a world of opportunities make us not want to try as hard because we live safe in the knowledge that ‘there’s always something else out there’?
Do faraway Instagram images steal us away from anything remotely challenging by convincing us to try and find another version of paradise?
It’s definitely not all bad, of course, but I don’t think it’s all good either.
