Engage Your Brain – Combat Information Overload
You thought you were overwhelmed by information before? Just look at this!
There are over 1 trillion pages on the internet, whereas there are only 6.7 billion people! And it is estimated that it would take one person 31,000 years without any sleep to visit all of them. This has all been built since 1969.
What would happen if you wanted to be an expert in any field? First you would start with information.
Where do most people get information these days?
By the time you read the information available to make you an EXPERT in your chosen field, most of that information would be obsolete.
Let’s put your brain to work. If you were to reverse-engineer what we have just covered, where is the bottleneck? What is stopping you from covering the required information in only a little time?
Reading speed averages ~250 words per minute – usually less than one page in a minute.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could cover information like a living breathing computer, accessing millions of words per minute? Wouldn’t it be great if you could be filling your mind with 25,000, 100,000, even 200,000 words per minute? What about that photographic memory that you were born with?
Well, you better not take too long to think about it. You are not just being left in the dust; you are buried and pushing up posies! Watch out, another day gone, here comes another billion pages at you.
