Reducing Information Pollution
By Jonathan Spira
Information Overload causes people to lose their ability to manage thoughts and ideas, contemplate, and even reason and think. It has resulted in work days that never seem to end, completely destroying work/life balance.
Information Overload Day 2016 takes place on October 18th, and is a good time to take action to reduce the impact of Information Overload on your work and life. Simply follow these five rules and share them with your coworkers and you’ll find a marked change in your own personal overload situation!
Don’t let Information Overload strangle your organization’s productivity. 94% of those we surveyed have at some point felt overwhelmed by information to the point of incapacitation. Just remember, for every 100 people who are unnecessarily copied on an e-mail, eight hours are lost!
Happy Information Overload Day!
