How's your week coming along? Hope great! It's only Tuesday and mine is as hectic as can be. I have three major quizzes and a Bio exam on Thursday so imagine all the reading I have to do. Yeah...a lot of reading, and this does not include my regular everyday reading. My regular everyday reading involves doing blog-rounds, scanning the dailies to keep up with the ever changing world, and then my advertising industry journals. Talk about major information overload!
It gets exhausting sometimes trying to keep up with it all, and I wonder how do other people do it? How do you do it? How do you cope with all the information that is constantly being thrown at you? I understand that it is humanly impossible to read it all, and you've got to prioritize but then its almost as if each one is just as important, and you don't want to miss out, and then be in the uninformed category.
Every where I look, people are consuming information in one form or another. Constantly glued to the Berry's, Iphones, TV screens, Internet, chatting with colleagues, strangers on the bus...all the while being bombarded with news, details, stories and happenings both past and present. It is the age of information overload...and I'm just curious as to how you handle it? What do you read? What's important to you and what isn't (in regards to information)?
I can't be the only one feeling slightly overwhelmed with it all...so share your story.
PS: Got a Marketing Internship position at a company downtown. Start in a week, and I'm excited to hit the ground running. Though, I'm not exactly 100% sure what and what I'm going to be handling, I'll get my full break-down on my start day. Still hoping for summer position at Young & Rubicam, or DraftFCB since my main area of interest is account management. Will keep you posted.
Have a great week ahead, and continue to be the BEST you can be.
