This is the 2nd episode of season 4. In this show, I look into what "information overload" actually means in the context of both the coronavirus scare and more generally on our everyday life and I also offer up advice on how to deal with it.
We really are living in an age of information overload. Google estimates that there are 300 exabytes (300 followed by 18 zeros) of human-made information in the world today. Only four years ago there were just 30 exabytes. We've created more information in the past few years than in all of human history before us. Daniel Levitin
Mental energy is the world’s hottest commodity. People are going to try to steal it, drain it, and suck it up every second you’re awake. Yet very few of us protect it. Few of us know how. Isaiah Hankel
The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history. George Orwell
The ACCURATE THINKER will not accept as such all that he sees and hears for the reason that it constitutes the rocks and reefs on which so many people flounder and go down to defeat in a bottomless ocean of false conclusions. Napoleon Hill
Information overload is a plague. There’s no vaccine, there’s no cure. The only thing you have is self-control. Karol Krol
There’s no such thing as information overload. It’s filter failure. Clay Shirky
That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. Steve Jobs
Accurate thought involves two fundamentals.” He says, “First, you must separate facts from mere information. Second, you must separate facts into two classes -the important and the unimportant. Only by doing so can you think clearly and accurately. Napoleon Hill
