To Much Information
I can totally relate to information
overload. In my opinion part of
this problem comes from what I
call S.O.S. (also known as shiny
Another problem I personally
had, and still do from time to
time, is the need to know
everything about everything.
To solve the first problem focus
is the answer.
Find one subject that interests
you and stick to learning about
that one niche only.
For me right now that is list
building. I only focus on things
that will help me to grow my list
or improve my relationship with
my list (I prefer to call them my
cyber friends). I don’t get side
tracked about building a
membership site, learning how
to write a perfect kindle ebook,
learning how to make money on
Ebay or anything else that has
nothing to do with list building.
Although I’m interested
in learning more about these
topics, if I go chasing for info
about them it will take away the
time I have dedicated to
building my list.
Maybe later once I’ve
established a good sized
responsive list and I’ve become
very comfortable with my list
building skills I might venture out
to learn something new. But not
until I’m 100% comfortable with
what I’m trying to accomplish
with my list building goals.
The problem with continually
putting new info into our brains
is we never get a chance to
really put what we are trying to
learn into action.
Instead of giving our minds the
chance to learn one thing we
end up trying to learn twenty
things. Eventually when you go
back to what you were focusing
on in the first place you’ll have
forgotten most of what you
learned because your brain was
trying to process all this other
information. Now you’re back to
A lot of us jump from one thing
to another way too soon.You
see, most of the the time when
you stop working at something
you have been diligently hard at
work to complete another shiny
object or magical press this
button shows up and we quit
what we have worked so hard
on. Most of the time if you have
spent a considerable amount of
time and hard work you are so
close to start seeing profits.
If you focus on one subject and
set some small achievable
goals for yourself your mindset
You’ll find you have a sense of
urgency. Then projects and
tasks will begin to become
completed and you’ll find your
business moving forward in a
Once you become truly focused
on one niche the problem of
S.O.S. will no longer exist
because you are not going to
buy every get rich golden button
(that doesn’t exist anyway) that
winds up in your email inbox.
Not every one of them will
pertain to what you’re focused
You will become extremely
focused on task at hand and
have no time to waste by
chasing all those time wasting
This also gets rid of information
overload because you’re now
focused on learning about one
topic not twenty or thirty.
Another thing about info
overload is this. We are never
going to learn everything there
is to know about internet
marketing. There is just way to
much information for our minds
to comprehend. That’s ok
because we can outsource,
Google or go to YouTube to get
things done or find the
information about what we don’t
When you do these things you’re
business will start moving in a
positive direction. This is how to
This might not help everyone
but it’s what worked for me.
Since it’s what I personally
experienced and I know it works.
I wanted to share it with you.
I hope this helps and as usual
