Get a Life! Part 2: Expanding Volume of Knowledge

Dear Friends,

Once again the 5 Mega-Realities:
1. Population growth
2. An expanding volume of knowledge
3. Mass media growth and electronic addiction
4. The paper trail culture
5. An overabundance of choices
This week's segment is about Expanding Volume of Knowledge and a few Life Saving tips that you can apply.

(Taken in part from "Get a Life! Living and Working at a Comfortable Pace in a High-Speed World.)

#2 - Expanding Volume of Knowledge

The speed at which new information and data are disseminated is beyond your ability to keep pace. There's more information in one issue of the Sunday New York
Times than your great-grandfather was exposed to during his entire lifetime.

More than 365,000 books are published each year.
More books and articles are published in one day than you could comfortably read in the rest of your life.

Except in specific areas of interest, there simply is no possibility of keeping pace. You can, however, make choices about where to focus your energy and attention.

Life Savers:
Put your attention on what's really important to you, your chosen priorities. Collect articles or information that help you on the job, help your family, community and so on, as opposed to being lured by sensationalism in the thousands of publications competing for your attention.

Don't let new information invade your being if it doesn't relate to you, your family, community, or any important area of your life, or if it comes after hours.

To get back in control of your life simply turn off your information receptors for several hours each day.

Give yourself permission to go a whole evening or weekend without reading anything, and spend the time instead doing something that gives you a sense of freedom, fulfillment, or fun.

Take a walk, watch a sunset, sit on the beach. When you give your brain some time off, it can absorb and retain more of the important information you feed it.

Next week we will discuss:
#3 - Mass Media Growth & Electronic Addiction
