A detailed guide to to causes, manifestations and solutions to Information Overload.
After spending the last few days managing a massive volume of email, I decided to look online for some practical tips that can be practiced to be more efficient and effective in preventing email overload.
The attached article recently published in the AICPA online news provides several practical tips such as:
• Adopt an email folder system to organize your emails
• Use filters to automatically file or better yet delete unwanted emails
• Don’t use emails for conversation, try good old telephone or in person conversations
• Don’t allow emails to interrupt workflow or other planned activities
• Avoid “reply to all” when really not required
• Don’t skim and skip to come back later, handle once
• Think before you send, is the email important? would you want to receive it?

IORG has done a tremendous job to raise awareness as well as provide well researched, practical resources to address the complex issues of information overload. They were way ahead of the game and continue to lead in this arena.
Dr. Lawrence Ampofo Director & Founder, Digital Mindfulness
IORG’s work is extremely relevant and impactful in an age when people regularly suffer from information overload. I regularly use their work to get the latest high-level thinking on information overload.

The costs associated with information overload are too high for this problem to be seen merely as an academic rhetoric… IORG helps us to not forget that this is a problem we face every day, despite the fact that it often goes unnoticed. In that sense, IORG was, for me, a “canary in the coal mine”, an advance indicator showing the imminence of a dangerous problem.
