Are you DROWNING in Information?
Is there SO MUCH information crossing your path that it all starts to BLUR?
Do you feel OVERWHELMED with everything going on?
Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Email, Blogs, Youtube, Buzz, Viddler, StumbleUpon, Messenger, Chat, Podcasts and lets not forget, TV, Radio, Newspapers and good ole Books.
Is it truly an Information REVOLUTION?
Everyday we seem to have a NEW FORM but in reflection, I wonder what it was like for those people around when the radio was first available or when the TV became AFFORDABLE for most, did they too feeling the information influx OVERWHELMING?
There is no doubt that we are INUNDATED with information every day but I don’t see it as TOO much and here’s why:
- I say NO to some forms. I don’t need to be on everything all of the time.
- I RESTRICT the time I spend on information intake so that I can get on with DOING.
- I have total information DOWNTIME everyday i.e. go for a walk without the headphones and listen to the birds chirping.
- I have learn’t to QUICKLY filter the ‘wheat from the chaff’ so that I intake only relevant information I want or NEED.
CHOICE is a great thing but treat it with caution so it doesn’t OVERRUN your life.
