Expert Access: What You Can Do About Information Overload

By on June 21, 2011No Comment

Today, both in the media and in offices around the world, there’s much being said about the problem of Information Overload. Unfortunately, there’s far more being said than actually done.  This is one of the reasons I wrote my new book “Overload! How Too Much Information Is Hazardous To Your Organization.”

Information Overload, a term that was first used in the early 1960s, describes an excess of information that results in the loss of ability to make decisions, process information expeditiously, and prioritize tasks effectively.

The problem of Information Overload can cause people to lose their ability to manage thoughts and ideas, contemplate, and even reason and think clearly.  For many, it results in work days that never seem to end, thereby completely destroying whatever remains of a supposed work/life balance.
