Do you remember back in the "olden days" when we had to go out and find information? I remember driving to the library with my mom to page through book after book in search of whatever nugget of knowledge I needed to finish a school project. Those were the days!
These days, we don’t have to find information. Information finds us—at least, if my overflowing email inbox is any indication! It can be so overwhelming, and while paging through all of the newsletters, articles, blogs and social media posts out there can be good for a little afternoon procrastination, it sometimes feels like all that information keeps me from doing what I really need to do in my business. And sticking my head in the sand like an ostrich certainly isn’t going to keep me on the cutting edge. 🙂
So how can you be the kind of thought leader who wades through the noise and picks out just the right nuggets to keep your business ahead of the curve?
