It swirls in so many different directions. It's mind numbing. It's contradictory. It's too much.
There are times that I wish for simpler days. Days that I didn't feel like I was bombarded by the latest theory, trend or discovery times 1000. I seem to be too easily distracted and almost feel like I have ADD. I use to be able to focus for hours on a project. But, have noticed that while I'm working on a project that I love, my mind races to start ticking off the "other" things that I need to be doing. I can't seem to simply enjoy the moment. I need to fix this.
It's hurry up to keep up, catch up, or get ahead. What happens when you chose not to play the game? Does your life become more or less complete? If you don't keep up with the world news are you really behind the times? It seems that one news story contradicts another, be it today or a year from today. For example, we have all been told that red meat is bad for us, but just this week it was reported that it's not red meat that is bad, it's processed meat (which does make sense). How many times are we told that if we are doing this or aren't doing that it is bad for us and then recanted at some point in the future?
How do you handle all of the information? Do you find yourself frozen or overwhelmed?
Mass communication = mass confusion...
