I was listening to a talk by a man I admire very much. While he was talking I heard "Where's the knowledge I have lost in information?"
A light bulb went on in my mind. I have been questioning certain things in my life, you know the usual, which diet should I go on, which vitamins are the best, which ones should I take, should I take a probiotic, should I join a gym, should I just walk, am I feeding my dog the right food for her, are my cleaning products doing a good enough job, should I be using Lysol spray, blah, blah, blah....... On TV every commercial they show, makes you wonder. I read about herbal remedies, I read about vitamins, teas, water, and on and on.
When I heard this statement I thought, YEP that's me, I'm lost. My knowledge has been lost in to much information. Whoa! Soooooo, I'm gonna do my best to simplify. Commercials will get the mute button, and I'm gonna follow my gut instincts about what is best for me. Now I'm not advocating not studying something out to learn more. We should, but I believe that the busyness of life, the many things that bombard us each day need to be put away or at least put in perspective. I for one am tired of being overwhelmed with information. I need to gain knowledge and then make a decision.
Does this make any sense to you? What are you bombarded with that you have lost the knowledge with to much information?
