I presume this the book on a DVD...

https://www.amazon.com/Refuse-Choose-Wh ... everything

or

https://www.amazon.com/Barbara-Sher-Rev ... rbara+sher

It looks like maybe the subtitle just changed (someone else here may know that for sure).

It would be great if someone could confirm its the same book. I can order "refuse to choose" easily" The descriprion of "what do I do when I want to do everything" is spot on what im looking for.

"Do you feel stuck in a rut because you want too many things? Do you think it would be wonderful to know, once and for all, exactly what you want to do? Maybe it would. But with so many interests calling you, how will you ever decide? Well you don't need to! In this fascinating and uplifting book, Barbara Sher shares her theory that many people who feel this way are what she calls 'scanners' - they have many interests and need to do lots of different things. Unfortunately, the pervading attitude is that successful individuals have one talent, one linear career or are dedicated to one hobby. As a result, scanners feel obliged to make narrow choices and then feel discontented with what they choose - or they are overwhelmed by choice and end up doing nothing at all. This book is for everyone who feels they want to do too many things and can't choose just one. It helps people understand that they do not have to focus on one thing - that they can love many different things and do them all. Barbara shows the reader how to accept and respect their nature, how to tackle the thorny issue of time, and examines one of the most tricky areas - how to find a great career. There are lots of case histories, an identity quiz to help readers create a detailed profile of themselves, and exercises that give them a more objective view of who they are and what they need to do to achieve their best work."
