Information Overload? Stop Moving

I had the pleasure of hearing the charming and witty Karen Salmansohn speak the other night at the Ladies Who Launch monthly meeting. She’s promoting her new book, The Bounce Back Book, about “how to thrive in the face of adversity, setbacks, losses, failures, illness, rejection – you name it.”

Karen has a clever way with words. She likened having a case of information overload to being stuck in a snowglobe. You can’t see what’s going on because all that snow is flying in your face.

What’s the cure? Well, with a snowglobe, you set it down and let it sit there awhile and the snow will slowly all fall to the bottom. With your brain, same thing. Sit down and let your brain just be still for awhile until your thoughts become clear again.
