I want to do everything to the umpth degree. For example, when I subscribe to a blog I feel obligated to read every one and I feel bad if I don’t.
To combat this I set boundaries to filter the information that is allowed to take up space in my life.
Normally I become interested in a thought leader but I have to figure out if their information is valuable. To do this I will follow them via Twitter. By the way, I am going to be cleaning out Twitter soon.
If I find them valuable on Twitter I then will follow their blog via RSS. I try to shy away from the email newsletter since it is distraction in my inbox; compared to my RSS reader which I decide when I will interact with the posts.
How do you deal with information overload?
