The Difficulty of Learning in the Age of Abundance

  1. There are more bits of information than there is time to learn it (or learn of it).
  2. Setting goals, and pursuing them with singleness of purpose, creates filters for your content consumption.
  3. The key is not to consume more content, but to consume better content. Be very selective about what you consume. You can’t take it all in. If it doesn’t feed your goal, ditch it.
