Many of us are going through change - career, purpose, spirituality, complete as you see fit - related. 

As you embark on a new learning journey a whole world of possibilities and new information appears in front of you. You’re so excited that you double click on every single link, follow all accounts, buy all the books you can find and listen to every single podcast. Fascinating, isn’t it? 

It is. Until it becomes overwhelming, because there is just so much information out there.

I don’t necessarily have THE answer, but I can share what I do to address it.

5 attitudes to cope with information overload and find trust in your process.

In his book and podcast, Jim Kwik explains that if you manage to read for 45 minutes a day, you can finish a book a week (on average), which means you can read 52 books in a year. 

Then, it would make sense to say that even if you read for 15 minutes a day - doable for almost anyone - you’d be able to read at least 16 books a year. More than most of us do now. He suggests you keep an active book list to keep track. The key here is CONSISTENCY

Mind your use of social media -> how much of it is meaningless scrolling? What if you used that time to learn about what you actually care about? Become INTENTIONAL about the use of your screen time. There’s plenty of resources to help you with it - setting off notifications is a first step, and if you need something more extreme - leaving your phone where you don’t see it always does the trick!

We live in a very well informed world, but unfortunately not a very wise one. Even our educational systems favor information accumulation more than any other sort of intelligence. I find that there’s nothing like trusting our Inner Knowing.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the information out there, and here’s a secret: You cannot know and learn everything. So I believe the best way to go about it is to start and go where your INTUITION takes you - discard fast whatever does not resonate with you, and make a plan and prioritise what does.

Last but not least, the overwhelm comes from thinking there’s not enough time. 

You’re not behind, you are exactly where you’re supposed to be. It’s all perfect as is. 

So, why not take it a bit easier, TRUST your own process and ENJOY the journey?

You have the rest of this lifetime to become an expert at whatever you set your heart on.

Hurt People Hurt People

We hurt each other because we ourselves are hurting. Seeing our pain, and seeing the pain in the other is how we start healing. If hurt people hurt people, the opposite must be true. Some conversations are tough to have, but how can we afford not to?
