The Financial Lesson in Too Many Skis (NYT Blog Article)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

 

I live in Park City, Utah, where some of us take skiing pretty seriously. One morning some years back, a friend swung by my house to pick me up to go backcountry skiing.
 
I ran into the garage to grab my skis. I stood there for a second looking at my four different pairs of skis, each designed for particular conditions, and suddenly, I was paralyzed. I just couldn’t choose.

From the article, his solution was to throw out three of the pairs and keep one. When you only have a hammer, I suppose everything looks like a nail.

 

"Worrying" over a ski choice? I wonder if he panics when given a menu at a restaurant? I'm imagining him on a plane freaking out when faced with "Chicken or beef?"

I have a few pairs to pick from.

Never caused me a single problem but has created many a smile.....
