What Is Information Overload: Some Perspective
We hear the term information overload being bandied about all over the place. But do we really know what it means? And if we know, is that the answer to controlling it?
Wikipedia gives credit to the author of the 1970’s best seller, “Future Shock”. They mention as a definition, “…the difficulty a person can have understanding an issue and making decisions that can be caused by the presence of too much information”. That’s a pretty good definition if you ask me. But I like to refine it a bit, I like to believe that it can do with a lack of purpose, organization, and focus.
How Our Minds Wander
It’s a natural part of life for us to wander in our thoughts. How many times throughout the day have you caught yourself daydreaming. The internet has actually made it much worse. Think about how easy it is to stray from what you are supposed to be doing and starting browsing on Pinterest or Facebook.
Purpose + Organization + Focus = Results
- Purpose – having a purpose gives us meaning in what we do.
- Organization – once the purpose is defined we can organize our goals to accomplish it.
- Focus – gives us the ability to stay on track.
Now this is not to say that you will never wander again if you obtain the above items. But you will have a greater determination which means you will wander less.
How This All Fits Into An Online Business
When you create your online business, you try to define that business as best you can. That is essentially your purpose. But time and time again, people stray from that purpose by getting pulled in some other direction by the latest and greatest thing being touted. It’s called the Shiny Object syndrome. But if your purpose is truly defined, you are less likely to be mesmerized by such things. You can more easily ignore them because they don’t fit within the confines of your purpose.
How To Find That Purpose
Not every program on the internet is useless. One in particular that helps people define a purpose everyday is one that I have been involved with since 2009. Before I get to what that program is, I want to state that this program is designed to answer all of the above, i.e., purpose, organization, and focus which is what I believe leads to positive results. The techniques that you will learn will give you the confidence to deal with information overload and can really be the means to creating a successful business. And having that ability is quite powerful because it means that you don’t really have to depend on anyone to make a living.
Time To Grab Your Opportunity
I have set up a review of the program that I have been describing so I won’t reinvent the wheel here. But if you knew about something that was free to join and that could potentially change your life for the better, don’t you believe it is something that is worthy of investigation? When you learn the right methods that alone is how to stay focused.
