I guess I was overloaded yesterday and missed Information Overload Awareness Day! Thankfully, Beth Kanter wasn’t. Take a quick hop over to her tips. And don’t be overwhelmed by the number of the tips. (Little evil grin)
Today is Information Overload Awareness Day. The purpose is to call attention to the problem of Information Overload, how it impacts both individuals and organizations, and what can be done to lessen its impact.
Here’s one way you might celebrate. Take my information overload quiz. Look at your score and ask yourself the following reflection questions. Then pick one idea to reduce information overload in your life from this list.
I don’t know what shifted, but in the last four months, I seem to be able to let more of the “information stream” pass me by without becoming worried. I take that as a good sign. But this fear, this sense of having to “master” it all is common amongst peers and clients, so having a strategy is important.
