Too Much Information
I’ve been reading Stillness is the Key, by Ryan Holiday this week. Holiday is one of my favorite authors and his blog turned me into a reader many years ago. His new book, focuses on slowing down, being deliberate, and creating time to pause, think, reflect and stay present.
We’re all blasted with news alerts, texts, calls and social media all day. If you’re not precise about having quiet time, you’ll never get it. We have so much information coming at us all the time. The news is on all day, we’re bombarded with information on Instagram, we can get lost down a YouTube hole and the answer to any question takes us less than 5 seconds to type
I’ll leave you with the quote that started a chapter:
“A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.” - Herbert Simon
