Information overdose

Information overdose

  • Modern bonus systems are based on principle, what I’ve done to be where I am now.
    • But it is completely blind to a point what I’ve avoided doing to get here.
    • Which in most cases is more important.
    • Procrastination is a natural defense that allows things to take care of themselves and exercise AF.
      • Procrastination usually happens when you are faced with unnatural duties and procedures.
        • Visiting a dentist, doing homework with your son.
      • We, humans, are terrible at filtering information, especially short-term information.
        • From a meeting, or newsfeed or social media feed.
      • Procrastination is a safety mechanism to filter better, to resist the consequences of jumping into the pull.
        • Jumping makes us neurotic individuals. Avoid at all cost.

    • Information can be toxic even in moderate quantities.
      • This quality of data is rarely discussed, though Marcus Aurelius warned about it. ![[Марк Аврелий о чтении#^691deb]]
      • The more you look at data, the more noise you get in return. ^f81513
        • Reduce the frequency, instead of looking at the phone every hour, pick it up every two hours, or even better, every 4 hours.
        • Use it primarily as a gadget to receive and make calls.
        • Keep silent in the absence of something significant.
          • Newspapers and social networks can’t do it, due to the economics.
        • Information is a stressor. Too much of it and you step over a threshold of no return and drown.
          • You are becoming fragile.
