Destroy Information Overload

by Rob on February 9, 2012

Here’s some stats.

• Every second, one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube.

• 24 hours of video is uploaded every 24 seconds.

• 9 months of video is uploaded every two hours.

• A decade’s worth of video is uploaded every day.

• Every 10 days, a century of video is uploaded.

How are you meant to keep up?

If someone directs you to a must see video, how are you meant to follow them then go and watch it
etc etc.

You need to be able to manage info overlaod.

Here are a couple of techniques:

1. Only follow 2 or 3 people online.

a. So unsubscribe to everyone’s list except the two or three that *really* resonate with
you.

b. Then just stick with them.

2. Decide what you want to do online

a. Is it create a product?

b. Is it build a list?

Then when you are online just ask yourself this question:

“Is what I am doing now getting me closer to creating my product? (or building my list?) etc”

AND if the answer is no then STOP whatever it is you are doing and focus on what you are meant to be doing.

You need single focus.

You need a focus.

The information is too much. Way too much. Like Every 10 days a century of video is uploaded… and that is just on youtube.

You will never win that battle for information.

You will never win the battle to consume all the information. You need to decide to shut it out.

Follow just 2 or 3 people. That is it. The ones that resonate with you.

And make sure they support your long term goal online.

good luck,

Rob Stafford
