My To Do list professionally has far exceeded the amount of hours in my day since about January. This has been causing me a lot of stress and anxiety. Some things had to fall behind, like spending my book money, planning new ideas for work, writing here and elsewhere, and reading my RSS feeds. I just finished “marking all as read” to almost my entire list of subscriptions. I only left items in two folders, mostly technology based, because I want to catch up with some of the technology news. I can do that during lunch.
Someone asked me in my preconference, and someone always does, how are they supposed to find time for all of these new things. I always say you make time. When it becomes too much, you unsubscribe, unplug, and refresh. You control your own information intake. Be a good consumer.
