Our current level of electronic noise makes deep thinking almost impossible. Today I received over 209 email messages, had 35 postings on my Facebook page, uncountable listings on my Linkedin page, and several voice mail messages. This was after having methodically unsubscribed to legions of emails and registered on the “do not call” list. Of that tsunami of incoming messages, only about a half dozen were at all relevant to my business or my life.
I am sure my numbers are just a scant portion of those that some of you receive. We are living at a time when the noise level of incoming messages has reached epic proportions. It’s like sitting in the front row of a rock concert. The level of noise is so great that you can’t discern a single word.
