There is no shortage of places to find information. You have social channels, news outlets, and the internet. Further, our brains are limited in the amount of information they can hold and all these combined can take an emotional toll. Ross Dawson joins Kevin to discuss information overload and how it can be perceived as a problem or an opportunity.

Key Points

Ross Dawson talks about the difference between overwhelmed and abundance. He shares 5 powers to manage information overload. These include: 

  • Purpose - understanding why we want information at all, so we can understand how to use it well.
  • Framing - connecting all the information we encounter to make sense of it, build knowledge, and develop expertise.
  • Filtering - being able to see what is useful to us and discarding everything else.
  • Attention - intentionally selecting where we direct our awareness, not just through focus, but in exploring and regenerating ourselves.
  • Synthesis - the ultimate human capability of connecting the dots to understand the world, see opportunities, and make better decisions.
  • He discusses practical tools we can use for filtering.
