The power of ignoring mainstream news: Why reading the paper is like eating junk food

The power of ignoring mainstream news: Why reading the paper is like eating junk food | Maximizing Business Value |

How much time do you spend consuming information that you have no intention of taking action on or that you don’t care deeply about?

Love this post as it reinforces why I'm so careful with my consumption of mainstream media. Once I heard "cancer" and my name in the same sentence I knew curating my head was going to be critical. "All energy to shields," was kind of how I thought of it.

Agreed! Curate yourself!

"The world doesn’t need more people who mindlessly digest whatever information is around. What the world needs are people who learn with purpose, who take action on the things that are important to them, and who seek out high quality information as a way to spark creativity — not as an excuse to consume even more."

Hint:  You want to focus on the Circle of Control.

The 21st Century Curator

The 21st Century Curator | Maximizing Business Value |

Not surprisingly, curation has become the next buzzword after social business. With content coming at us with the force of a tsunami and the fury of a tornado, curators seem to have become our saviours—our sense making guide. One post out of five I have been reading in the past few months seem to be associated with curation or its close cousins—aggregation and filtering. Even as I read, I was tempted to apply some of the curation strategies and put together this post. I like to build some context around the links because—who knows—in the Internet world, a working link today can be a dead link tomorrow.


curation, content that matters...
