Keeping Up

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:55 am by thelawthoughts

43Folders had a few very interesting posts about the phenomenon of 'info glut' a while ago (see here and here).

I am a shocking 'keeper-upper' and it can make life much more stressful than it needs to be. I take on too much reading, too many newsletters, too many blogs. I feel like I need to read them all, and have trouble deleting information 'I might need' without reading it.

I have a pile of Economists I haven't had time to read, and a pile of marketing newsletters.

Why do we do this? I am not the only one! I guess that now we all have access to the sum of human knowledge, we feel like we are missing out on information if we don't take it all in. We need to realise that we don't need EVERY piece of information out there. Good luck changing the habit, however!
