Almost everyone who surf the web today will face this problem, sooner or later, i.e. Information Overload
Exactly why is it happening ?
#1 – There Are So Much Information Available That We Have A Hard Time Processing It
Make a search today on any Search Engine on the web for almost any topic and you will get millions of web pages as a result. Add-on available ebooks on the same topic plus published books available on Amazon.com and you will realize that there is no way you can possibly process all these information in your lifetime. Bearing in mind that this is only one topic you have just search for!
Question is “How do you know which of all these information are factually correct?” or “Who should you trust or have faith in ?”
#2 – Continous Flow of Unsolicited Information
How many unsolicited or “junk” emails are you receiving every day, even with your SPAM Filter in action ?
How many email lists have you subscribed to that were once relevant to your interest, but are now just sending you irrelevant sales offers?
Minus those Spam eMail messages, what about those emails that was send to you without your knowledge, i.e. you did not subscribe for it ?
All this adds up to an increasing amounts of information that you need to deal with.
#3 – Contradiction In Knowledge Increases
With so many of these “gurus” claiming to be the right advisor, who should you really trust? The one with the loudest voice? The one with the largest group of supporters or testimonials? How do you evaluate contradictory information in a subject that you are just beginning to research?
The above 3 bullets were inspired by Rich Schefren’s report: The Attention Age Doctrine.
