You can quote that in your next article, Reinhard. :)

Which, btw, I am waiting for <tapping foot impatiently>. I assume it's Autodidact output, and I'm very interested in your methods for that.

Thanks for the link... I've heard of that "paradox of choice" issue and I think it's true and useful. "Good constraints" is a great concept, too. My downstairs neighbor is hugely into postive psychology and from the little I've read about it it sounds like an improvement over "blame your parents and if that doesn't work take drugs" kind.

I've actually recorded the "output" episode already. Just waiting till next week to release with the newest health hacks... (I have to go down to monthly instead of weekly for the next few months because of book/kid#2).
