We all suffer from it, like drinking water from a fire hydrant, INFORMATION OVERLOAD. Just look at the picture of the all the Web 2.0 sites!

Below are four methods, I use to avoid information overload.

• Concentrate on the one problem/task you have to complete today (or even better, during the next hour), research only the information necessary to complete that task and then test it to see if it works. Repeat this process until the problem/task is solved.

• Note what sources of information tend to be more reliable and helpful for future reference. I bookmark resources in for use later.

• Do not consume content just because you feel you ought to, or because of a sense of needing to keep “up to date”, or to be entertained.

• Unsubscribe from any email newsletters that you have not opened in the last week to read. Obviously, they are not that important, unclutter your inbox.

    This is a good one Mark…isn’t amazing how you can sit down to do one thing and then 25 websites and 15 emails later…
    It takes huge amounts of focus. And blinders.
