Philosopher Alain Button examines the irony of excess news: 

“There’s an awkward fact about information.  If you have too much of it, it starts to numb you.  You lose the thread.  You forget what you were even interested in or what you can change…an excess of information can erode any sense of what the real priorities are.”

Twitter is the real-time amplification of news.  It’s so overwhelming and informative that we give an important story 100% focus and just as quickly devour the next one.  Our attention span today is “one second less than a goldfish.”

If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:

1. Read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
2. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
