Help! I’m Drowning in a Sea of Information Overload

Honestly, keeping up with social media is killing me. Every day it seems like I get farther behind.

Here’s what I’m facing:

And the crazy thing about it is it never lets up, takes a break or goes on pause. It’s 24/7. Tomorrow I start over. It’s like compound interest. Or Groundhog Day.

Keep in mind that I’m not one of those people who gets by on 4 hours of sleep a night. And I really value life balance. I’ve got a life, a family. I’m a volunteer mediator. I serve in my church and community. And I have a business to run.

Add to that the fact that I’m cursed with being an average reader. It takes me awhile to digest all this stuff.

I don’t like it.

I’m searching for ideas. Answers. Solutions. Throw me a lifeline here. How do you manage all the information that comes your way every day?
