Today the headlines read - "Obama Doesn't Like iPads."
You know, I really don't like the news. They seem to have a distorted view on what really happens.
Here is the original statement from Obama:
“With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation.”
I may not agree with what he says all the time but, I definitely agree with this statement and so do many others.
From Michelle Price - YES i see it everyday in business, ppl complain overwhelmed because not have focus enough to know what they need to act on
From Poland Culinary - Careful selection is a must in a world of info overload!
From Blue Phoenix NYC- - The potential to distract is there. It really depends how disciplined you are--information is so overwhelming these days.
The truth is, the web has a magic power over people. One minute you are looking up keywords, then you find something you never heard of, you look that up which leads you to a book store, and then you are watching funny videos on YouTube.
Twitter and Facebook are two great places to find information as well. Yet, how many times have you attempted to do one thing and an hour later you haven't moved on to something else?
The information and the messages CAN get lost if you are not careful. This is when information becomes a distraction and becomes more a form of entertainment.
The best thing we can do as store owners is to manage our time wisely.
Choose what time of days you will search for information and choose how long you will spend gathering that information.
If you are going to market on Twitter, understand how long you are going to spend on Twitter and what times of day will you be visiting.
I have learned that if I come into the office and do not read any emails, view any Twitter messages, or log into Facebook. The first thing I do is create my to do list and start with the most important priority of the day.
This helps me to focus on getting important tasks done immediately.
What do you use to help you from getting information overload?
