Too much information. That’s the cry from this year.
I remember when we first started on the internet back in the last century. I’d already been living with corporate email for almost a decade before the internet hit full steam. So I laughed a little at the analogy that the internet of the early 90’s was like “drinking through a fire hose”. Anyone else remember that line?
I was a voracious reader. I was a quick study. I could stay up later than anyone. I could keep up.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to yell “give!”
For the first time in my life, this last year has overwhelmed me. Yes, I take on too much. Yes, my fascination with many things keeps me over-committed. But for the first time, no amount of working harder will get me out of it. It’s been a brutal year in that regard.
So I have to get smarter and better. That’s not a New Year’s resolution. It’s a necessity.
But it’s not all hopeless. I’ve started to develop some strategies for dealing with all of this. I’ll be glad to share them with readers of this blog. But in the coming year, I’m going to be looking at ways of — changing the game on this issue of too much information.
I’d appreciate your help and input.
What game changing strategies have you adopted to help you cope? How have they worked? What obstacles have you found? What are the real issues you are confronting.
C’mon. Share. Leave a comment on the blog. It only takes a few minutes. Spelling doesn’t count.
Let’s work this out together.
And have a great Christmas — and a wonderful, stress free New Year.
