Wow! There's a very long gap between my last post and this one. However, I'm recommitting to connecting via blog to share relevant information (hopefully!) and ask insightful questions about the world in which we live.
It's amazing how much information passes before us now. Hundreds of articles containing fabulous and informative content speed by each month. Thousands of links are shared via Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter and there are only a handful that I actually allow myself to click. In a world of so much information, how do we weed through the onslaught of information to bring us to our next great thought or business lead? How do we keep track of the latest developments on all of the social media sites and technology platforms? Where do we draw the line between useful and just too much to bear?
I think one of the hardest things to do in this age of information is to stay focused, stay driven. Distractions are everywhere and available at the speed of light. Minutes easily slip into hours of lost time and productivity. So, I guess the question I'm posing is this...in a world of infinite and beautiful information, how do you stay driven, focused, and committed? And, what rules or techniques do you use to filter information down to the truly useful? What limits do you place on yourself to eliminate distractions and interruptions? Ultimately, how do you cope with the endless feed of new?
