7 Time-Proven Strategies for Dealing With Information Overload

7 Time-Proven Strategies for Dealing With Information Overload | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

This helpful list of info-overload strategies includes the good and bad effects a single approach.  It's from Fast Co. and a curation connoisseur. 


I've found Google apps use of priority mail VERY useful and just about 90-95% spot on in showing me what's important in my email onslaught.

A coach and/or good use of assessment tools and your own, tuned self-awareness will help you decide which from Fast Company's list is most important to you right now.  


The examples give a flavor of what's at stake.

Excerpted, Fast Co:


The advice is from 1962 study and has been updated for today's daily battle with digital overload.   The techniques are very much still valid.


1. Omission – ...you can’t consume everything, so just ignore some. ...a bit dangerous since some of the omitted information might be the most critical. 


2. Error – Respond to information without giving due consideration. ...without thinking through all the consequences 


3. Queuing – Putting information aside until there is time catch up later. An example is processing email early in the morning, before the business day begins, or reading important reports late at night.


4. Filtering – ...employs a priority scheme for processing some information while ignoring others. Automated tools are particularly well suited to help filter information.

Curation & Blogging, Business Lessons Learned & Curator Prescience, 2012

A choice in social media for business today is blogging or curation, or some of both, or developing a hybrid. How do you make smart choices among traditional and the newest social media tools?


Curation to deal with Social Media Overload:  It's a theme in my new, tailored video presented this month to the local Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing, @LA2M group, focusing on the differences between blogging and curation.


Curation is not filtering, it's not aggregating, it's functioning as a librarian of current and classic content, which allows others into the curation process curate with you, to help avoid "filter bubble" syndrome (I've blogged & have a Move.on video on the subject.)  ScoopIt enables the co-creation curation function as one of the newer curation platforms out there.


I also mention in my video, both Beth Kanter, a respected blogger in non-profit circles, and Robin Good, who was just interviewed by Beth.  This seems to be a prescient convergence to me.


LA2M also archives most of their presentation, so my presentation partner, JT, has his slides and our UStream video archived here, so you can access our combined, recent curationg presentation.


What do you think about curation?  What are your questions?
