"There’s a ton of content out there. And I mean a ton. The good news is that you can get answers to most questions, learn almost any skill, and gain inspiration and wisdom from the experience of others.
But the bad news is that this power, this constant availability of information, can be beyond overwhelming. There’s a never-ending barrage of thoughts and ideas and facts and images and opinions coming at us—good, bad, and completely irrelevant—and it’s hard to sift through the noise, carefully choose what to consume, and then (the real kicker for me for a long time) know what to do with the information and ideas and inspiration you glean.
I know all too well how icky it is to feel overwhelmed by content, so I understand your struggle. But I have found some ways to keep my head above water, and I’m here to share them with you so you can do the same."
That’s from the introduction of my new (free!) guide, Consume Mindfully: Clarity and Consistency for Information Overwhelm.
I typically help creatives, well, create content. But how's your relationship with the content you consume? If you're anything like me, even if you try to prune regularly, you find yourself inundated with thoughts and ideas and images and more, more, more. It's overwhelming. In Consume Mindfully, you’ll explore your current situation, make decisions about where you want to be, take action now to make consuming and using information much easier, and learn how to maintain your newfound freedom.
If you're interested in taking charge of the content you consume, this is for you. But it isn't a quick fix or even a short process—this is real, nitty-gritty, actionable work (my favorite kind).
