I had asked the other day does twitter take up too much time – and if so, how do you manage it? and saw some interesting responses – most of which amounted to “turn it off”.
Twitter is only one of the information feeds that come flying into my machines wherever I am – I’m deluged with email, instant messages, alerts of various types, phone calls (cell, skype, and landline/voip), text messages, and so on. Not to mention the 2000+ feeds that I try and skim daily looking for news and other information that I can use for blogging, personal enjoyment, and client information.
As much as I try to simplify things through the use of RSS for key information, search terms to eliminate the number of overall feeds that I need to read, and so on – there’s still a ton of information coming my way… and at times it’s almost too much.. Almost…
With all of the information that’s coming towards you each day – what are some of your methods for controlling the madness?
Post them here and I’ll write more about my workflow methods later this week – and share some of yours as well.
