“Process New Information”
I want to start, before to give some of my insights from this chapter, with the following paragraph from the book “What to Do When There’s Too Much To Do.”, “Spotting incompetence is simple. Look for people who now full well what they need to change to become more productive but refuse to do so. You know the one. Yeah, I know I need to organize my files, but that’s just how I am. Always been this way.”
At this part of the road, I have a lot of unprocessed information, so I have started to tame my information glut; also, I have begun to triage and reduce the inflow of information using the different insights that Laura give us like, The Tickler File concept, H.U.G criteria, the 6-D system, etc. Also, I have started to organize the MFF’s audios according to their type.
By the same token, about to research effectively, I usually do it via Google or Yahoo, however I have started to use the DuckDuckgo searcher machine. Of course, also using the Boolean operators.
An interesting topic is how to improve our skill of reading. Laura recommends the Rhythmic Perusal method by the University of Minnesota’s J Michael Bennet. The point is to get the content as the Mentor Michael Dlouhy points out. In particular, I summed up this with Dale Carnegie when he recommends “Nine Suggestion to Get the Most of a Book.” In one my articles I mentioned my strategy to read a book as well.
Finally, I have noticed that in order to integrate our old or/and new information, we have to put our Subconscious Mind to work as we have learned from 30-Day-Mental-Cleanse Forum.
