Feeling frazzled and overwhelmed with the amount of material coming across your desk each day? Having difficulty keeping up with journals, transmittals, e-newsletters, reports, documents, podcasts, Tweets, pins, and business-management bestsellers?
If so, you may be suffering from “information overload,” a growing problem that impacts productivity and performance at work. Information overload is emotionally unhealthy and can result in poor concentration, poor decision making, and an inability to get work done. If left unchecked, information overload can weaken the immune system and cause depression and burnout.
