1.Treat The Information You Consume Like the Food you Put into Your Body。
2.获取信息的原则：Is this one of the small number of things that adds a significant amount of value to my life?
3.When you stop consuming so much, you’ll find yourself creating more.
4.The information you put into your brain is just as important as the food you put in your body. As the old saying goes, garbage in garbage out. Choose wisely.
5.Learning What to Ignore Is An Important Skill to Master In An Information-Rich World。
6.The information we consume matters just as much as the food we put in our body. It affects our thinking, our behaviour, how we understand our place in the world. And how we understand others。
7.What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.
8.If you are serious about upgrading your life and career, invest in the right kind of knowledge and proactively ignore everything the media is constantly throwing at you.
9.Given the power of breakthrough knowledge and the difficulty of finding it, one of the most fundamental questions we all need ask ourselves is: How do we use the limited time we have to find breakthrough knowledge in a sea of distraction?
“The net is designed to be an interruption system, a machine geared to dividing attention,” Nicholas Carr explains in his book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains.
But you can control that by unplugging from sources that add little or no value to your life. You don’t have to read every article, tweet, email, the endless stream of interesting articles on Facebook or watch those viral videos and the numerous phone photos on Instagram or Snapchat.
11.If you don’t master how to filter the distraction from the useful knowledge, you will waste half your time everyday on information you really don’t need。
12.Create your own personal filters to find useful and relevant knowledge。
Better and practical knowledge can empower you to make better choices and informed decisions.
Rather than read every news story because of the fear of missing out, seek out timeless and relevant information that can help you now and tomorrow.
Slow your information consumption cycle by choosing a trusted source and signing up for their newsletter.
13.Rather than get caught up in the “breaking” part of news where facts are more uncertain, slow news is the idea of a longer news cycle that focuses more on fact-checking and careful reporting than being first to report on a story。
Unless you’re willing to be radical about what gets your attention, you will continue to waste a lot of time scrolling unnecessary information.
Taking back control is the only way to really control irrelevant information overload. Find ways to feel more in control. “The Internet never says, ‘You’ve had enough, now go away,’” says Hooked author, Nir Eyal. And that’s the case for any information source.
To maximize your brain every day, use better tools and settings to filter information throughout the day. Be proactive about how you consume media. Train your brain to ignore unnecessary information.
When you organize your day with these principles in mind, you will likely increase your brain’s efficiency significantly.
If you don’t unplug from everything that wants your attention, turn down the firehose, and find the sources that mean the most to you and work, you will continue to waste your precious time and attention.
Remove options you don’t need, it’s liberating. Choose what you consume consciously — with the health of your brain and body in mind.
As Zig Ziglar has said, “Your input determines your outlook. Your outlook determines your output, and your output determines your future.”
The best learners, peak performers and successful people in the world proactively seek timeless information and knowledge they can use now and tomorrow to keep moving forward. Only seek information or knowledge that empowers you to achieve your goals and to live your life to the fullest.
If you start reading only relevant information, with the intention of really learning deep and useful things, you will notice the difference in your approach to thinking, working, and making life-changing decisions.
