Telling shiny objects apart from true illumination

shiney object syndrome

The amount of information available to us (both on & offline)  is growing more than 65% each year.

Astonishing? Yes.

Depressing?  Maybe.

Overwhelming.  Could be.

In an IDC survey sponsored by Xerox, respondents said they spent up to 26% of their time dealing with the consequences of info overload.  Before you throw up your hands in despair, make sure you put yourself in the driver’s seat.  Do away with shiny object syndrome & focus.

Focus on the light – what comes to your awareness easily & naturally.

And focus on the dark – what lurks just out of range, what you perceive as ‘different,’ ‘other,’ even ‘odd.’   That’s where true illumination comes in.
