Time for a data diet?

The best place to be an author or consultant these days has to be the field of personal productivity. Who isn’t overwhelmed these days? Information Overload: Time for a data diet? looks at the problem: “The river of content is turning into a flood, and my instinct is to get to higher ground.” Two main solutions are presented: turn to technology (relying on RSS/web feeds to bring info together)…and stepping away from the internet. The first solution makes sense. The second…I don’t know…it seems like we are getting more tethered to the internet through smart phones. The solution to overload is twofold: 1) new tools and techniques for managing what we want to track, 2) a new mindset – one that accepts always being behind, always learning, always missing something. And that’s the way everyone else is. And that’s ok.
