It’s my third or fourth or fifth day of twelve-hour day – each for a different gig (political meeting then an environmental conference then non-profit treasurer training then …) – and I decided, dang it, I was going to write SOMETHING today. Now it is pushing midnight.

Why is the world so overwhelming all the time? Well Anthony Bartlett talked about “The Triple Overload Problem – and What to Do About It” on April 12, 2018. (As of 11/5/2023, link seems to no longer be available – but if you search on the title, you will run across many helping articles and videos available on the subject.)

Between Data Overload (everything is available to you all the time) and Communication Overload (everyone thinks you are available to them all the time), Cognitive Overload (the brain doesn’t get a break to actually process anything) can be crippling – especially for writing.

Solutions? Three simple ones are provided. Even better, there is a link to a whole whitepaper by Dr. Beat Bühlmann available through the blog posting.
