Information Overload

Information Overload

When you work on your own or in a small team it can be really difficult to navigate through the endless streams of information available online, to download, to buy. How do you know who to trust? How do you know if any of it’s relevant or even if it is suitable for you to tackle?

“...a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention”. Herbert A Simon

‘Most of us who are overloading ourselves with information think we’re being productive. We’re learning, after all. What’s more productive than discovering what you don’t know?

Yet information overload paralyzes us into a state of inaction, and if we don’t use the information that we’re learning immediately, we lose up to 75% of that information from our memories and brains, making all of the information we’re taking in nearly useless.’

Let’s have a chat and see if we can help prioritise what information is useful and how you can use it effectively. The old adage quality not quantity holds true
